It is quintessentially English. It is at the heart of village life and a celebration of the gardening year. It’s a great day out. So you must come and join us on Saturday 27th August.

If you don’t exhibit, you can still enjoy the contributions of others in the village. Pick up a schedule from the shop. Categories include vegetables, fruit, flowers, handicraft, baking, flower arranging, photography and children’s art work. The cups are being polished as I write.

If you wish to enter for the show, you need to bring items to the Village Hall on Friday between 6pm and 8pm or on Saturday between 8am and 10am.

The show could not happen if it weren’t for the generosity of those willing to give time to put out, man and pack away at the end. We are ever grateful to the judges, the committee and people who give to the produce stall. If you haven’t helped yet and would like to, please contact Viv Day on 268653 or just turn up.
