the Hadleigh Gardening Association's 2017 Spring Flower Show today, 1st April, at the Methodist Church Hall in Chapel Lane.   It was advertised using the poster to the right and the newsletter.

To help people organise for next year, here is an extract of the well practised routine for entering exhibits;

{This year you can enter two entries per class and more where stated.

PLEASE RING (01268 776863) SPEAK TO Dave OR John

Register your entries BETWEEN 2pm and 8:00pm on the Thursday before the show. You may get an answering machine; please speak SLOWLY and leave your 1st Name, Surname, this year's Membership Number and your Class Entries. Repeat the process for each person in your family who is entering;    and so on........}

The key thing to remember is that you have to be a member to enter; membership is surprisingly reasonable and the benefits remarkable.          

This year's competition entries were excellent;  some who did not compete this year are now planning their own entries next year with the words, "I'm sure I can do better than... "

Admire the fritillary, the tulips and subtle flower arrangements; then most people stopped at the raffle desk on their way to the refreshments,  parkin and bread pudding were just two of the outstanding treats in store.
