Flower & Produce Show 1st August 2020

Whilst there is uncertainty over whether Gittisham’s annual flower & produce show will go ahead this summer, the organisers have decided to plan for it happening.

The show is open to all residents of Gittisham parish, which includes Gittisham Vale and Hayne Farm estate.  Entries from those who no longer live in the parish, those who actively support the parish, and those with close links to the parish are also welcomed.

The seeds for the special category of potatoes grown in a bucket are ready.  If you entered last year you should have your bucket with a number on it.  The seed potatoes to be used can be collected from the back door of Parkers East EX14 3AS from Wednesday 1st April.  They will be there from 9.30 am until dark with an honesty box for the £1 per potato and a sheet of paper for you to write down your name and the bucket number(s). 

It would be sad if the show cannot take place, but you will have had the pleasure of watching your produce grow.
