Pilning Flower Show organisers promise visitors a blooming good time
WITH more classes than ever before, Pilning's Flower Show promises visitors a blooming good time.
The 44th annual floral bonanza will take place at St Peter’s School on Saturday, August 24 and offer locals the chance to enter as many as 76 categories, including vegetables, preserves, flowers, fruit, wine-making, photography and several children's classes.
Organisers have introduced brand new sections to mark the show's second year at its venue such as needlecraft and paper craft.
Other new classes include comic-captioned and weather-themed photography, a flower arrangement to celebrate the royal birth, which will be voted upon by the people attending the show, a fruit pie and a jar of pickled produce category.
Chairman Richard Edwards said: "The school has a terrific function hall that allows us to show off the entries to their full potential.
"We have more space available and so have been able to introduce additional classes such as needlecraft and paper craft to go with last year’s successful reintroduction of adult crafts."
Organisers have more surprises in store for young contestants as the children’s classes have been re-vamped to encourage fresh entries.
The show will open to the public at 2.15pm.
Proceeds will go to charity CLAPA, a voluntary organisation at Frenchay Hospital supporting people with cleft lips and palates.
Show programmes are available from local post offices for 50p.
Entry is free.
