58th Summer Show

Saturday 9th July 2022

Free Church Hall, Norton Way South SG6 1NX map

Opens at 2:00pm. Admission is free

We are pleased to be able to award the Banksian Medal for a second year. This will be presented to the exhibitor who scores most aggregate points in all classes at the summer and autumn shows. We are resting the Children’s, Schools’ and ‘Challenge’ classes, so no Fuchsia Challenge this year.
New classes for 2022 include: an item of jewellery in the Handicraft section and a bottle of liqueur in the Home-made Drinks section. 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 sale, refreshments and raffle.

It’s a great afternoon out for everyone
