Preparations are well in hand for the 125th annual show of the King’s Lynn Horticultural Society, being held this year at South Wootton Village Hall on Saturday, August 9.
There are more than 100 classes in various sections including a Junior Section for under 16s.
Entrants are invited to make an anniversary cake for the birthday of the society and the winner will receive one of the 28 trophies on offer. Trophies will be presented by Henry Bellingham MP.
On display will be a memorabilia stand which will include minute books going back to the formation of the society, a specially-produced booklet on the history and various other artefacts.
Entry is open to anyone. The show is free and there is plenty of free parking. Entry information from the show secretary, Rachel Vyse, on 01553 631820.
The society points out that for anyone who wonders what the show is like, this will be an opportunity to go along and see – and to those who have been and say “we have better things than that” now is the time to enter.
Growers at the many allotment sites and gardens in and around King’s Lynn where good fruit, flowers and vegetables are grown, may also wish to show-case the products of their endeavours for this year.
The society is not elitist and is open to anyone with an interest in gardening.
