2019 Show schedule launched on 29 March
New classes and old favourites at this years show on 14 September – and we said goodbye to a show stalwart
At this years Spring meeting, AGM and launch of the Village Show Schedule, we heard about some new classes, including Class 509 – Homebrew. We’re also continuing the ‘Tallest sunflower’ competition, but with some tweaks.
We also say a fond farewell to Peter Janikoun who is retiring from the Show Commiitte after many years of sterling service. He was presented with some fine wines from France by new chairman Andy Birrell, including a special bottle of ‘Fat B******’, a particularly full-bodied red.
Diane Hayes gave a fascinating talk on some Holyport landmarks, and we all learnt some new things. Who knew that Stirling Moss used to live at Linden Manor?
WHERE TO GET THE SCHEDULE
The print schedule can be picked up for free in all the local Holyport shops as usual, or you can download the whole thing, or just the forms, below.
We welcome our newest member, Beverley, who’s won many prizes in the past. We are looking for one more Committee member to help us organise the Show. We have a few evening meetings throughout the year, and of course you need to be free on the day (and the evening before to help set up).
Peter Janikoun stepped down as committee chairman at the AGM, and Andy Birrell will be ‘grasping the nettle’ to take over.
Open Gardens 2019
We won’t be running the Open Gardens in 2019, but we will revisit the situation in 2020.
