Do you want to know what grows well in and around Alford? Would you like to see the hard-earned results of months of work through the mixed weather we’ve had this year?
Alford and District Garden Club is delighted to invite you to its annual Flower and Vegetable Show. Come along on Saturday afternoon, 17th August between 2 and 4, to Alford Public Hall, in Kingsford Road. As usual there will be a magnificent display of members’ locally grown flowers, fruits and vegetables, photography, children’s classes and floral art. This year we are looking forward to a new industrial section of preserves, cordials, sweets and baking. A grand raffle, home baking stall, and our renowned plant and vegetable stall complete a wonderful afternoon to celebrate every aspect of gardening. Entry £1 for adults.
If you’re looking for ideas for the last weeks of the school holidays … any children, aged 12 and under, can enter the children’s classes, which this year are:
A collection of nuts, seeds and berries in an egg box or egg tray;
A greetings card made using pressed leaves or flowers;
A vegetable vehicle.
Entries will be accepted on Friday, 16th, from 7-8pm or Saturday, 17th between 8 and 9:30am.
All will be made very welcome. Hope to see you there!
