The Mayor will be there to present prizes and after the show members will be talking about their favourite plants.

We also held our Geranium Competition which was judged by Pauline Pears and Linda Parker. Congratulations to Monica Davies who won first prize. You can see photos of the geraniums and the results on the Show page.
There have been four very enjoyable Club visits to members gardens this year - details and pictures are on the Outings Page. A big thank you to Vera, Louise , Barbara and Catherine who opened their gardens for us.
Several members have been bringing flowers for the Display Table which we hope will become a regular feature. Please bring in things that are interesting from your garden to share.
