116th Autumn Show

Saturday 10th September 2022

Free Church Hall, Norton Way South SG6 1NX map

Opens at 2:00pm. Admission is free

We are resting the Children’s and ‘Challenge’ classes, so no Chilli or Mystery Seed challenges this year. The Tapps trophy will instead be awarded to the best fruit exhibit at the Autumn Show.
New classes for 2022 include: mixed grasses & seed heads, mixed dahlias for the novice grower and a bottle of liqueur. This can include gin flavoured with botanicals such as Sloe Gin or the vodka based Limoncello.
Running throughout the afternoon there will be a plant/produce sale, refreshments and raffle. We are also hoping to have a selection of craft demonstrations.

It’s a great afternoon out for everyone
