Broadwindsor Annual Show

BROADWINDSOR & DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

Annual Show 2017, Comrades Hall, Monday 28 August

If you have not yet entered one of our shows, why not give it a go this year? With over 90 classes to choose from, there is almost certainly at least one that will suit you.

To dispel a myth, it is not the same old faces who win all the prizes. Last year, 14 people shared the 19 trophies and cups on offer in the adult section.  This year, your chances will be even better with the addition of a new cup, the Ian Jones Dahlia Cup, which has been kindly donated by Megan Jones.   So put in your exhibits and one of these might be gracing your home for the next 12 months.

Show schedules, with full details of all the classes and the entry form, are available either from the Comrades Hall servery or the village shop.  There is no charge for entries, but your completed form does have to be delivered to the shop by 25 August.
