Autumn Show 2017 on 9th September – Schedule and Entry form

We have had rather a mixed summer weather-wise but some impressive crops!

It is now time for the Autumn Show on Saturday 9th September, so please find something to enter.

There are lots of ways that you can help with the show. Volunteers are needed to help set up the show on Friday evening from 5.00pm at the store on site 2 and also help clear up afterwards. We need cakes and biscuits for the refreshment stall, preserves for the produce stall, along with cuttings and plants. Then bottles, jars and unwanted gifts for the Tombola as well as some things suitable for children.

We also need you to come along and support, see the entries, meet your fellow allotmenteers, have a cup of tea and home-made cake and relax and enjoy the afternoon!

See you there!

Please email root@roehamptonallotments.co.uk  or contact Carol Martinez if you can help.
