July would normally be rather a hectic month for us all – committee and members alike – with preparations for the Kilmington Village Show and our annual Flower Show. There is, of course, nothing normal about 2020, and so we are twiddling our thumbs and watching the plants, flowers and vegetables in our gardens perform like never before. First Prizes every one! We have to content ourselves with what might have been and reflect on past glories and the possibilities that lie ahead next year!
We would normally report the Show’s proceedings on the website, accompanied by many colourful photos of the entries in the marquee but since we have been obliged to abandon the Show this year, we thought it might cheer everyone up to share your photographs of some of your best flowers, fruit and vegetables. We are therefore inviting you to email your photos to Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, 25th July, the date on which the Show would have been held. If you would like to submit no more than 3 photos of your ‘would-be entries’ we will create a page of your fantasy Flower Show! This is not a competition and your produce does not need to be displayed “show-style”, it’s just for the enjoyment of all of us and the pleasure of sharing your achievements.
