This traditional event in Hedon’s calendar has more than just beautiful flowers as organiser John Newby explains:

“Visitors are welcomed with Tea, Coffee, biscuits and as always a chat. As well as displaying exhibits of Chrysanthemums, Vegetables and Crafts, the Cookery section is always very impressive too with increasing numbers taking part than in previous years. The children are starting to bring their exhibits too!

“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the Committee and the helpers for raising the funds needed to stage the show each year.”

Schedules for the show are available from John Newby – Telephone 01482 898724.
