Kilmington Village Show

Our marquee is always full of colourful flowers, vegetables and children’s exhibits and the art and photography and home-made produce is displayed in the village hall – but not this year! We look forward to 2021.

You are welcome to join us!

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 info@kvpa.co.uk 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.
 

Talk of the Month

Cancelled

Good Gardening

Kilmington has fertile soil, soft Devon climate, and a long tradition of good gardening.

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the village ‘Produce Association’ has spread its influence far beyond carrots and cabbages, offering talks and demonstrations by experts who understand the needs of the novice with a window box as well as the gardener with an acre or two.

We hold a plant market, open our gardens, arrange visits and host a summer flower show as part of the Village Fayre, and are ready to share our enthusiasm for plants and gardens with everyone, old or young, resident or visitor.

 

Kilmington Kids’ Corner

Don’t forget that if you have any gardening stories or photos to share with us, we would love to hear from you!
