Come and see our displays of flowers, fruit and veg, domestic produce, handicrafts, photography etc – better still why not put in an exhibit or two yourself; you don’t have to be an expert to join in. Both members and non-members are welcome to enter and there is a trophy for best newcomer.
Everyone who had an LDGA chilli plant, we would love to see how you have been getting on with that. There is also this year’s mystery seed challenge.
New for this year we will also be having a floristry demonstration and a produce sale including cakes, jams & chutneys as well as home-grown produce.
All this plus refreshments with home-made cakes and free admission for everyone makes it a great afternoon out.
