Larger CENTRAL Venue for Stapleford’s own Family-friendly Produce Show and Auction
Stapleford and District Garden Holders’ Association invite you to the annual Produce Show and Auction on Saturday 22nd August at the Conservative Club on the Walter Parker V.C Square, Derby Road, Stapleford.
Alongside the colourful displays of home-grown produce, a raffle, treasure hunt, quiz and tombolas, children’s crafts and a plant stall make this an event for all the family, with a comfortable seating area to relax with a drink and a home made cake as you wait for the produce auction at the end.
Fancy entering some produce yourself?
The show is open to anyone in the Stapleford area and if you grow flowers, fruit or vegetables or enjoy baking or making preserves there is a show class for you. There are 4 special classes for children too. (To get your copy of a show Schedule please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0115 9392459 ) Entries must be exhibited between 8am and 11am on the morning of the show.
Doors open to the public at 1.30pm and the awards will be presented at 2.30pm by the Mayor of Stapleford. This will include the announcement of the winners of the childrens’ poster competition and the winning entry in the “Schools Growing Cup”.
Come along and see what the green-fingered people of Stapleford have coaxed into growth through this unpredictable summer on allotments, window boxes or patio tubs. (Will a pumpkin have to arrive in a wheelbarrow as one did last year?)
At the end of the Show try your hand at bidding in the auction and take home some fabulous fresh produce.
