About Us

We are a small friendly society whose aims are:
> To continue to maintain village activities concerned with amateur fruit, flower and vegetable growing and presentation, home cookery, photography and handicrafts.

> To offer help and advice to beginners of all ages.
> To run three shows a year and we are always willing to offer help and advice to new entrants.
> To encourage and welcome those who do not qualify for the competitive classes due to their professional expertise, to stage special exhibits demonstrating their skills.


We have a membership of approximately 150 people.
Annual subscription: £3.00 per person, or £6.00 family membership.
