Bishops Waltham Gardening Club – July News


One of the Club’s highlights is always our Open Annual Show. The fact that we are now on number 63, proves that it’s a popular event and of interest to many sections of society. You don’t have to be a gardener, either. Maybe you make a delicious cake or a sugar decoration. Perhaps you love flower arranging or maybe make delicious jam! How about getting the kids to make something?

Pick up your Brochure (including entry form) and see just how many classes there are. For the competition, Members’ entries are free, as are children’s, and we ask a nominal 20p per entry for non-members.

Don’t forget the date, it’s SATURDAY 20th JULY, The Jubilee Hall, Little Shore Lane SO32 1ED. Open to the Public at 1.45p.m. Kids are free, and it’s just £1 for adults.

If you haven’t entered before, it’s the fun of it, winning doesn’t matter -though we all do our best in the hope of scooping a prize) and to see your entry on the show bench gives you quite a boost! For Members of the Gardening Club entries are free, but it’s only 20p per item. Parking is free, also.

If you have been to the show in previous years, haven’t you thought “I could do that” or “I grow those just as well”? probably you have, so now is the time to have a go. You WILL enjoy it.
