Chipperfield Horticultural Society Spring Show
Saturday 3rd April 2004
After the wonderful shows we had last year, this years Spring Show is around the corner.
There are many classes for daffodils; trumpet, large and small cupped, double and miniatures. Pictures showing the difference are to be found in this years Handbook and Show Schedule on page 9. There are classes for bowls of hyacinths and tulips, numerous pot plants, both foliage and flowering and vases of spring flowers. Plus
seven classes for vegetables, two for floral art and six for the domestic section.
All those of you who have been busy during the winter months can find classes to show your paintings and drawings, framed or unframed; an article in handknitting and indeed any other article of handicraft..
The junior section, 16 years and under has four classes, age to be stated on the entry form. School work can also be entered.
There is something for all the family, so come along to enter and take part in our Village Show which is a lot of fun. If in doubt about an entry or not too sure what to do, our Show Secretary, Roger Pigg, telephone number 01442 834287, will be delighted to help and give advice.
Staging, which means arranging your exhibit on the tables, takes place between 10.00a.m. and 12 noon on the morning, and this is followed by the judging. Doors open at 2.30p.m and the prize giving is at 3.30p.m. Teas are served in the afternoon and there is an auction of produce and a raffle.
At our Summer Show on Sunday 4 July, there are two classes for photography: 1. A View of St. Pauls Church. 2. An animal(s). Maximum size print 7″ x 5″. You have plenty of time to take that perfect picture!
