Spring 2010 Newsletter
This year’s show will be held at St. Nicholas Church Centre, Bedhampton on Saturday 7th August. Entries are restricted to members, but this includes anyone in the same household. Floral arrangements, children’s and handicrafts are open to anyone. The theme for the floral arrangements is “boy’s christening”.
Last year we had lots of children’s entries, so this year the adults need to make a greater effort to enter something not to be outdone by the younger members! Schedules will be sent out to all previous entrants and will be available at the store or at the May supper. If you need a schedule phone the Show Manager, Geoff Tanton on (02392) 479419 and he will reserve a copy for you.
The topic is “Dahlias and Chrysanthemums” and will be given by Bryan Madders. It will be in the United Reformed Church Hall, Havant at 7.30pm. As this will be the last meeting of this season, let’s make it a really good attendance, especially as the evenings are light now!
This will take place on Wednesday 26th May at the usual venue of the United Reformed Church Hall in Elm Lane. Tickets are £5.50 and will be on sale at the April meeting, or from the Store or from Viv Costal on (02392) 453138.
The store is open every Saturday (except show day) from 2-4 pm. Entrance is by the lane next to the fire station. There are lots of products available and small quantities can be made up specially.
