We are planning to have our annual plant sale on Friday 3rd June, as it is a bank holiday, from 9am to midday in the Village Hall Car Park. However, we do have a lot of bedding plants ready to be planted out now so have decided to have a pre-sale this Saturday just of bedding plants. This will be in the Village Hall Car Park from 9am to midday. Please spread to word about both events to fellow gardeners and we will hopefully see you at one of our plant sales.
We would like to thank everyone for their support with the Spring Show on Sunday. We were a little concerned whether people would enter or come along on the day after not being able to hold a show for the last two years, so it was great to see the hall filled with spring colour and perfume and have so many entries and visitors. Any feedback on what you liked or ideas for classes or things to include in future spring shows are always welcomed.
Thanks to all those who kindly baked and donated cakes. We had a lot of comments about the range and quality of the cakes. The painting exhibition seemed popular and the display of flower arrangements were beautiful. Please can we pass on our thanks to these groups for their involvement.
This year, we plan to hold a real Spring Show on Sunday 10th April at Lowdham Village Hall. Staging of entries will be from 9.30am to 11.30am. Judging commences at 11.45am and the show opens at 1pm. Prize giving is at 3pm and the show closes at 3.30pm. It is free to enter in the classes and entry to the actual show remains at £1.50 for adults with under 16s free. There will a display of Easter flower arrangements by St Mary’s Flower Guild and an exhibition of paintings to view and buy. Refresments will be served and there will stalls to browse too. Please join us. Entries welcome from all and the schedule can be downloaded from the side bar.
