Produce Show - Sunday September 8th

It is only 3 weeks today until our Annual Produce Show at Burton Green Village Hall on Sunday 8th September. Times for staging exhibits, judging and Open to Public were listed in the Schedule which was recently put through your door.

Don’t forget to feed and water your pot plants and nurture your vegetables.

Watch the size and pick slightly early if necessary. Read the schedule carefully for number of fruits and vegetables to display. This year has been a good year for vegetables and fruit so we are hoping for a very Competitive Show.

Ladies and Gentlemen who bake, treat your family and practice your cake making skills and if you haven’t entered the Preserves section before, try your hand at making Lemon Curd or Jam, fruit is plentiful at the moment.

We have had more children entering the last two years and this year have put in an extra section for children to handwrite a verse and illustrate, plus 4 different cooking skills and for those who like more of a challenge there is an art, garden and modelling section.

If you prefer not to enter, just come along and enjoy the Show and enjoy a sit down with a pot of tea or coffee and a slice of homemade cake.

Entry to view the show is free.  There is a small charge to enter exhibits for Adults.  Childrens entries are free.

Should you require a schedule or have any queries please contact me 024 7646 2070.

Hoping to see you there
