Show Schedule 2021

 

On 1 May 2020, the committee made the decision to cancel our Annual Show which was due to take place in August.  Due to the uncertainty at this time, this was the only option open to us.  The Show Schedule planned for 2020 will be used for the 2021 Show.  With so many people growing their own this year and baking/crafting with home-schooling children, we hope that the 2021 Show will be spectacular.  Stay safe.
