Seend Fete & Flower Show

Seend will be holding its 68th Flower Show on Saturday 12th August in the Community Centre, Rusty Lane, Seend.

The Seend Fete is being held on the adjoining Lye Field – so you can enjoy two grand spectacles in the same area.

The Flower Show is an open event, so entries are invited from all who may be interested in showing the results of their hard work in the garden, kitchen, and house. The show programme can be seen at www.seendflower show.org.uk from which the entries schedules and entry form can be downloaded. If you have any problems obtaining a schedule or entry form or have a question, contact the show secretary at 01380 828579.

Organisers say, “Of course there are large sections for vegetables, fruit, flowers, natural and arranged, and pot plants with additional sections for home produce (yum!), handicrafts, and photography. Particularly there are two sections for children: one for ages up to 8 years and one for 9 to 12 year olds. We are hoping for lots of inspirational entries from children. Seend School will be sending art from all their children as will Seend Playgroup. There will be cups and certificates galore!

“There is a grand trophy for Best Exhibit in Show; it is the Altfield Bowl generously presented by our sponsor Altfield. Altfield have also presented the Altfield Cup for most points in the home produce classes.

“There is a single exhibitor fee of £2 for an unlimited number of entries, but entries by children 14 and under in all sections are free.

“Hope to see you there because it will be a fun day. If you are just a spectator this year we hope that you will be inspired to put in entries next time. Come and say hello to any show committee member, especially if you would like to be involved in helping to stage next year’s show.”
