The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Tattenhall Gardening Society: August 2015
Our Annual Show is now just a fortnight away — on Sunday 6 September. ANYONE can get involved with this, whether young or old or somewhere in the middle.
It's not just about displaying the finest and most fragrant roses, the loveliest fuchsia or magnificent straight stemmed sweet peas. You do not need to be a gardener. Yes, there are flower, fruit, and vegetable sections but there are arty and crafty sections too. And the Great Tattenhall Cookery section is looking for jams, breads, chutneys and cakes from the adults, with separate cooking options for kids.
There is a wide array of photographic categories, including one for Tattenhall Wildlife, sponsored by TWiG. For the 7 and unders how about young Jimmy or Katie entering a vegesaurus in the "all sorts" section.
Interested in finding out more? The show schedule, which tells you all the sorts of things that can be entered into the show, as well as giving you some basic rules of what to do or not do, is available now from several village locations.
Novices can win. And the best in each section wins a trophy for a year.
Lastly, everyone is more than welcome to come along to see the show, which is at the Barbour Institute from 2.30 pm until the prize giving finishes about 4.30 pm. Delicious drinks and cakes will be available, as well as the Country Market.
