03.08.18  Horticultural Show – CANCELLED

It is with great regret that the Parish Council has made the decision to CANCEL this years Horticultural Show.  The prolonged dry weather and temperatures, which appear to going into the future, have impacted enormously on produce and flowers and after taking advice it was decided that the show should be cancelled now rather than leaving it to a later date when we could discover we have no entries.  The Council were mindful that entrants will already have been working and planning their entries and the cancellation will be disappointing and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.  We are making our plans for the 2019 show which will be held on 7th September 2019.   Horticultural Show Cancellation Poster August2018
