South Newington Flower and Produce Show – Thank You

Poster for Flower and Produce Show

On behalf of the Flower Show Committee I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who worked hard to put on the Show this weekend.

There would be no show without Advertisers, Sign-writers, Exhibitors, Bakers, Judges’ Hosts, Stallholders, Announcers, Auctioneers, Attendees, those who donated items and those who helped with the set up or take down. Thank you also to those who shared their Art or their Schooldays!

I do hope that you had an enjoyable day at the show. 

I’d also like to sincerely thank the members of the Committee for their help and support we prepared and planned the show.  

The Committee meet soon to wrap up the 2017  show.  I would be pleased to hear any suggestions which we can discuss for 2018.

With many thanks

Paula Staples
