The Annual Show
The Annual Show is open to all plot holders and garden members and is normally held on the first Saturday of September. In 2019, that will be on 7 September. A barbeque and salad lunch will be served outside the John Gray Centre just before the Show opens, to which everyone is welcome whether or not they are taking part.
There will be nine entry sections, including a children's section, and eight Cups will be awarded - including the Wyevale Cup for the best exhibit in the Show, in the judges' assessment. As in prior years (follow the links for pictures of 2017's exhibits), there will be sections for vegetables (collections, individual classes, and novelty), fruit, flowers, home produce and photography. Vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers were brought together in the much-admired trug display section.
Show Secretary is Rowan Hill (Plot 81A).
