The highlight of the summer 16th July 2011
By Jonathan Batten

Only a couple of weeks to go before the Flower Show and the excitement is building.

The committee has been preparing, the posters are on the roadsides, the flags are about to go up and the cricket field will be transformed into the showground before your very eyes.

For your part you need to decide on your entries and get those to Ann Ash by the Thursday before the show. I know weather conditions have been difficult but everyone’s in the same boat so please don’t be discouraged – put those exhibits in and join in to compete with your friends and neighbours.

It’s all there in the schedule – a variety of classes for everyone to participate in – if you’ve lost it don’t worry I can get you another copy or it is online on the village website – just follow the Flower Show link.

If you need any help with entries please ring our dedicated helpline 837550.
  • A small army of helpers is needed to put on the show so thank you to all those already enlisted – if you haven’t already been asked but would like to help do call me on 837450.
  • If you have books for the bookstall, Paul Woodhouse will collect them, call him on 837555.
  • If you can bake a cake for the tea tent then bring it along to the pavilion in the morning or better still enter it in a cookery class and donate a part of it to the tea tent.
Unlike a lot of things in life the Flower Show is not about money it’s about joining in, being part of the community and enjoying it.

We all know how that song goes:
‘Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all.’
And later...Get Jumpin!
Put on your dancing shoes and get down to the marquee for the best night of your lives.
Tickets, priced at only £20 each, are still available for the Flower Show Dance from the Shop at The Lee until Saturday 9th July. Please contact Pippa Hart with any queries: 837340 or
