The Committee have decided to cancel the Summer Flower Show, obviously because of Coronavirus and the ability to do safe social distancing.

Instead we would like to organise an alternative celebration of gardening, arts and crafts for local residents  to look forward to. The exact format and details are still dependent on what social activities will be realistically allowed within  Coronavirus rules and guidelines.

Preliminary thoughts are based on providing a Village Trail, encouraging walking or cycling as good exercise, and in order to observe physical distancing the event could run for the full weekend, ie Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd August.

Everyone would be invited to put displays of flowers, vegetables and crafts in their front gardens/gateways/on the allotments, in anyway they want; no entry fees; no judging, just a show case of all the great work that has kept us busy during the past weeks; and will certainly continue for the next few months. 

More details will be provided shortly – so keep an eye on our website for updates.
