Finishing touches to flower show

EXHIBITORS are making their final plans for the annual Longhirst Flower Show.

The event includes a number of classes for vegetables, flowers, cookery, crafts and photography, as well as junior competitions.

This year’s special class is for a geranium in a pot and free plants are available to anyone in the parish who is interested in taking part. They can grow them on at home and then present them for judging on the day of the show.

Other classes will mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, including a Jubilee cake, flower arrangement and art in red, white and blue.

Home-made refreshments will be available, as well as a raffle and tombola.

The show will be held at Longhirst Village Hall on Saturday, September 1, at 2.30pm. An auction of produce will take place at 4.30pm.
