PLANT SALE SUCCESS
Firstly, the Produce Association would like to say a big thank you to all of you who planted seeds, grew and donated plants for our annual Plant Sale and Coffee Morning. It made the day a great success and as always, we are grateful for your support. The money we make on the day goes towards the Produce Association being able to keep our Annual Show going for another year – and believe it or not, this August will see the 63rd show, which we think is something pretty special
We would also thank the WI for their delicious hard work!
THE ANNUAL PRODUCE SHOW
Saturday 3rd August, Lerryn Memorial Hall, 2.00pm
Schedules for the show are now available from Lerryn River Stores or from Brian and Penny Philp.
This year we have introduced a new category in the Novelty Class: we’re looking for Lerryn’s Tastiest Tomato – this one is not just about good looks but also about great flavour. We can’t wait to judge the results!
There are two inspiring titles in the Photography competition ‘Shadows’ for the Under 16’s, and ‘Happiness’ in the Adult class, and we hope to have lots of entries so that we can cover the back wall with creativity! Don’t forget – we’re not looking for the next David Bailey – we just want ordinary pictures that reflect our lives in this beautiful location.
Come and join us for a great traditional afternoon, including cream teas, a raffle and live music. Doors open at 2.00pm, admission is 50p, and children are FREE!
John Halkes will be opening the show for us at 2.30pm.
CALL FOR CUPS
Please don’t forget to return your prizewinners’ cups to Sue and John Hancock .
OUR IN-HOUSE EXPERT SAYS…
This is a busy month now the soil has warmed-up, and if it’s not too wet the seeds should do well. Not to worry if you’ve been a bit slow off the mark, as many vegetables can be planted this month – such as courgettes, French beans, peas and runner beans that can be sown direct into the ground from mid-month.
