Chipperfield Horticultural Society – Summer Show 21 June

1st of June 2014

Gardens are coming into their own at this time of year; all the hard work of pruning, planting, mulching and fertilising are beginning to show. All ready for the Summer Show on 21 June. This is the time for roses and sweet peas as well as delphiniums, sweet williams and fuchsias. This year, for the first time, we are introducing classes just for border carnations and garden pinks which will add to the colour and scent which always fill the Village Hall at this show. Fruits and vegetables will have their own classes, as well as 6 classes in the Domestic section and 3 in the Floral Art section. A floral arrangement in white and green for frontal effect, a floral exhibit depicting ‘Day of Wine and Roses’, a Centrepiece Table arrangement. The arrangements in the first 2 classes must not exceed 20” wide x 20” deep and 30” high – alcoves are provided. Handicraft has 12 classes; everything from paintings to articles of woodwork as well as a class for any craft that you have produced. Photography has 3 classes: Study in blue, Costume, Running Wild. Maximum size print 7” x 5” which may be mounted but not framed. Once again the Junior section have their own subjects: Silly Sunglasses, Father’s Day Card. Three age groups – 3 to 6 years – 7 to 10 years – 11 to 16 years. School work may be entered but the exhibits must be the exhibitor’s own unaided work and not previously entered at a CHS show.

Entries for this show to be either handed in at Garden Scene or emailed to by noon on Thursday 19 June at the latest. Regretfully, late entries will not be accepted.

Staging can take place on the Friday evening by arrangement or on Saturday morning between 8am and 10.30am. Doors reopen at 2.30pm, after the judging has taken place, followed at about 3.30pm by prizegiving and an auction of produce and a raffle. Delicious home made cream teas are on offer in the afternoon and so there is something for everyone. Come along and have a very enjoyable afternoon.
