Come and see our displays of flowers, fruit and veg – 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.
If you’re not exhibiting come along for a look round, watch Meg, our new cookery demonstrator and have a look at the plant sale with its wide variety of plants at bargain prices. All this plus refreshments with home-made cakes and free admission for everyone makes it a great afternoon out.
