Coming Soon

14th September

Autumn Show

Come and see our displays of flowers, fruit, veg and handicrafts– better still why not put in an exhibit or two yourselves; 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.

Flowers from the autumn show

There will again be demonstrations and a plant/produce sale including cakes, jams & chutneys as well as home-grown produce. All this plus refreshments with home-made cakes and free entry makes it a great afternoon out for everyone.
