Beech Gardeners are delighted to announce that the popular Beech Village Show will be back in 2021 on September 25, Covid restrictions permitting. Please support the Show by entering as many classes as you can and dropping by to view the exhibits. You may be surprised at the hidden talents of your friends and neighbours!
We aim to cover the cost of staging the show with entry fees (30p per entry per class), a modest profit on refreshments and a plant stall. If we do not cover the cost, we will not be able to put on a show next year.
There will be something for everybody at this year’s show, with 43 classes covering flowers, vegetables, fruit, cookery, crafts, photography, painting and poetry.
Families are welcome
Children may enter any class; age on entry envelope please. If we have sufficient children’s entries in a class, we will subdivide it. Where the class is not subdivided, the judges will take age into account— though in practice they haven’t needed to. The Family class of Making a Troll is for everyone of all ages in the family to join in.
Two classes—Abstract Art and Poetry—will be judged by public vote at the show. A cup is awarded to the Gardening Club member accruing the most points in the show, and there is a Brownie Point Cup for the person entering the most classes. We have awards for various categories and certificates for all classes.
This year, to support Beech’s proposed Coffee & Cake Shop, there will be a CAKE FEST, a stall with delicious cakes for sale, and an extra special show class for a plate of coffee morning goodies of the competitor’s choice.
The show will be open to all Beech residents, those who partake in the social life of Beech, and their families, and will open to the public from 12 noon; last entry 1.30pm
