SG 2022 Show ResizedOn Saturday 13th August 2022, the Sarisbury Green Horticultural Society will hold their annual show at the Sarisbury Green Community Centre.  This follows a break of two years for COVID reasons and the organisers are pleased to re-establish the event for the community.

WWAA exhibitors have always walked away from local competitions with a glittering array of prizes for exhibits entered and we hope that the event will be supported by allotment plot holders and  local gardeners as well as those who are skilled in baking, artwork and handicrafts from the local areas.   It's a bit of fun after a difficult couple of years and an opportunity to show our produce and skills. 

Exhibits can be set up between 8pm and 9pm on Friday 12th August or the following morning on Saturday 13th between  8am and 11am when judging takes place.  The event is open to the exhibitors and the public at 2.30pm.
