Happy New Year!

As we move into the new year and start to plan the 2019 Flower Show and events across the year, we can also reflect on the past year’s events. We have enjoyed another successful year. The Society supported Leigh’s entry to South East in Bloom, winning a Silver Award; The Summer Show was a huge success and thank you again to all those who gave their valuable time to ensuring its success; although entries were down on the Autum Show, everyone who came enjoyed the training on the Apple Presses and a cup of tea and cake. Again, thanks to all our lovely volunteers. The year ended with a Big Plant of 3,000 crocus bulbs on the Village Green – hopefully they will brighten our days when Spring finally arrives.

The Summer and Autumn Shows

The Annual Flower Show and Country Fayre will be held on Saturday 20th July 2019 and the Autumn Show on Saturday 14th September 2019. The format of the schedules is being changed with the addition of some new classes and others, that were not well supported, left out this year. We are also combining the schedules for both shows so that you can start your planning for showing early – especially the Autumn Show.
