About The Society

Our Society aims to preserve the traditions of the Village Show.  We embrace Horticulture, Cookery, Crafts, Flower Arranging with categories for Adults and Juniors.  We encourage entrants with little experience as well as seasoned professionals.  The intention is to stimulate friendly competition  whilst pursuing perfection.  We are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and 2020 is our 48th season.

The Society has a strong link with the Parish Garden Plots and is pleased to sponsor the Community Garden which helps local residents without access to a garden to grow and share fresh produce.  More information can be found in the Handbook Section.
