Hello Everyone

Thank you all very much indeed to all of you who supported us at our very pretty little Spring Flower Show held at the village hall yesterday Great Day !

The sun shone luckily for us and the day was very successful

All made for a welcoming and warm, happy atmosphere with many visitors coming to view the lovely entries in the afternoon Also very much enjoying the tasty refreshments served kindly by Tim and Penny all afternoon

There was such a lovely spring scent in the hall from the stunning spring flowers arising from the mass of wonderful yellow shades and varieties of Daffodils Hyacinths Narcissi etc The hall looked stunning ! Thank you all so much indeed

We loved the variety of all flowers and plants on show, alongside the wonderful Hellebores which is a class we introduced only last show and are so pleased we did They are amazing , so very pretty and so many varieties on show -Wow - They looked stunning and thanks so much for supporting these new classes

Thanks so much for all the lovely entries It was great to also see the handicrafts entries made this show - such skills amongst you all - well done and thank you for showing/sharing your talented makes

The cookery entries were a bit low but still offered a lovely tasty displays and we hope to get these classes improved in future

We would still love more children's entries across the board generally as we are always low on these too but it is great; as is usual to have the Brownies, Rainbows and Playgroup supports with their inspiring entries

Thank you so very much indeed for all you do to support us We are very grateful to you all as we always say without your input/entries/supports no shows could be put one

Congratulations to all prize and trophy/certificate winners

We had double the number of entries at this show ,than last year so that was very encouraging and we so hope we can maintain this standard and dare I say enhance perhaps these numbers even more with all you help at future shows !!!

Thank you so much


We have our annual Plant Sale to be held at the village hall at the village market on May 4th

We WELCOME donations of plants and garden related items on the day please Doors open at 10am Thanks so much

Finally - We always require empty lower pots of all sizes We do need all sizes please but especially the larger ones also please Thank you
