Burton Green Produce Show September 2020

At this time of the year, the Village Hall Produce Show Committee are usually busy preparing, printing and distributing the Show Schedule in time for everyone to prepare their entries for September.  At this point we do not even know if the Show will be able to take place.

However thinking positively, we thought it would be useful to send the schedule around now as people may wish to plan what classes to grow produce for, children could practice the crafts, cakes can be trialed (assuming you have flour!!) and maybe photos taken on your daily walk can be entered in the Photography classes.

The schedule can be viewed and downloaded from here (PDF file).
