Shows

We hold two shows each year in Spring and Summer.These shows give the more competitve members the opportunity to exhibit their plants and compare them with others. The displays on these days show an impressive range of flowers, vegetables and fruits. It can be quite amazing to see the differences between entries which are in fact in the same class! There are also classes for home industries, cookery, flower arrangments, photography and classes for children to enter. At the end of the show, a presentation of cups is made to the winning growers.

The  dates of the 2020 shows are:

Spring Show: 21st March, 2020

Summer Show: 22nd August, 2020

The schedules for them will be on this page as soon as they become available.
