A sunny, special occasion with a festive feel, the summer show was a great success and enjoyed by all. With thanks to those who set up, served, baked, judged, helped, enjoy re-visiting the occasion – or see what you missed! Full results in the next bulletin.
Our new style Summer Show will take place on the RGS Allotments Site 2 at 1pm. Come and enjoy meeting other gardeners – lunch in the open air and view the exhibits. The plant stall will be busy as usual and there’s a cake competition for all our bakers.
It’s an opportunity to showcase the lovely things we grow – please do enter for at least one class. There’s lots of advice about how to do this in the ‘Guidance for entrants’ and a full list of classes in the ‘Summer Show Schedule’ – which also has an entry form attached. Bring your exhibits along between 10 am and 12 noon.
The Autumn Show will take place on 8th September at 3.00pm in St. Margaret’s Church Hall, Putney Park Lane. We hope the sunshine has encouraged some good crops this year.
We would welcome cakes and biscuits for the refreshment stall, preserves for the produce stall, along with cuttings and plants. Also tombola items, including any for children. Please do come along to support, enjoy the show and meet your fellow allotmenteers.
If you could volunteer to help on Saturday, or particularly to set up the hall on Friday evening (7th Sept) please email firstname.lastname@example.org or let Carol Martinez know.
