Plant Sale - Saturday 25 May 2019 The Market Cross

This is the Club’s main fund-raising event and with costs always increasing we need your help, either by donating produce or buying produce donated by other members. Don’t forget, as well as plants we also have a cake stall, so to all the cake makers if you can donate a cake(s) it will also be much appreciated If anyone needs help in collection of plants/cakes on the day please let me know and I will do my best to help.

Annual Open Show- Saturday 27 July Charlton Village Hall

Members will now have full details of our Summer Show – a full schedule is available to be downloaded here and hard copies are also available. We have a date Saturday 27 July and I hope you will make it a ‘date’. There are very few changes to the classes, mostly to clear up any small confusion. We have changed ‘Class 5: Six cherry tomatoes’ to now become ‘Cherry type tomatoes’. Members will have noted that there have been a large number of new varieties of ‘small’ tomatoes, which come in various shapes, some are long and thin others heart- or pear-shaped. Our intention is to encourage as many entries as possible and we know some of you are drawn try these new varieties. In the same way we have divided ‘Class 8: One cucumber’ into those fruits grown outdoors and those grown under protection.

I do hope that you will all support our Show this year. There are lots of Classes and I’m sure you will be able to find something to bring along – in any case, let’s hope for a sunny day so we can sit outside and enjoy tea and cakes with our friends. Remember you can leave your entry forms at the E&S shop and also at the Garden Centre and of course at the Riverside Centre on the Friday. Derek
