At the request of an overwhelming number of our members it has been decided to hold the postponed 2020 show this year, providing that we observe the regulations in place both nationally and also within the rules and guidance laid down by the Fairfield Village Hall Management Committee.
This will encompass, Cleanliness, Sanitising, Social Distancing, a one way system, Mask Wearing and anything else that may be appropriate at the time.
The main concern is the SAFETY of Members and Visitors.
We are pleased to advise that the postponed Annual Show has been renamed as ANNUAL SHOW 2021 and held on THURSDAY 26 August 2021.
The Show Schedule is attached below for you to download in a format for printing as Folded A4.
The Non members / Visitors Class which is very popular and again there is sponsorship by Beechcroft Nurseries and Garden Centre. We are pleased to hold this popular Special Class for local Gardeners, Visitors and non members. For this Special Class there will be 6 Prizes of Vouchers/Cash to a total value of £45 and sponsored by BEECHCROFT Nurseries and Garden Centre and members of the Society.
The Special Class is ONE dish of any vegetable(s) grown by the Exhibitor.
As a guide the quantity of vegetables for a dish in this show is generally as indicated, but a differing amount is perfectly acceptable for this Class and as an example 5 matching Cherry Tomatoes would look better than 6 with one a bit wonky.
