Flower and Produce Show

Goring Heath and Whitchurch Show

As many of you will know, the village calendar (in a normal year) includes this twice yearly show in Spring and Autumn. Taking place in Goring Heath Parish Hall this is an opportunity for gardeners, vegetable growers and those with a craft, baking or a photographic interest, to enter into friendly competition. Entries are invited from residents of both Whitchurch and the parish of Goring Heath.

Needless to say there were no such shows in 2020 and with some doubt as to what opportunities will exist in 2021, the next show is planned for April 2022.

A date for your diary - 9 April 2022.

Goring Heath Parish Hall will host this opportunity for gardeners, vegetable growers and those with a craft, baking, or a photographic interest, to enter into friendly competition. Entries are invited from residents of both Whitchurch, and the Parish of Goring Heath.

To ensure everyone gets as much time as possible to prepare/practice any entries they may wish to submit - here are the topics for April’s show.

  • Art: Vase of Spring Flowers - A Picture of Lamb/Sheep - An Easter Bonnet. No item larger than A3.
  • Children’s Section (up to 12 years): An Easter Picture - Four Easter Bunny Biscuits - Small Vase of 3 Different Spring Flowers
  • Flower Arranging: Max 16ins/40cms Colours of Spring - Miniature Arrangement (Max 4ins/10cms overall) - An Arrangement in a Mug
  • Handicraft: Decorated Picture Frame - Knitted Item - Patchwork or Quilting Item
  • Photography: Scene from a Bridge - A Celebration - A Water Activity

We look forward to seeing you there. A full schedule for the day will be available in advance of the day itself, with instructions on how to enter etc. It will be very straight forward.

For those who do not want to enter the show itself why not come along and enjoy tea and cake and browse the brilliantly valued plant stall? A must for all Gardeners.

There are always preparations to be undertaken before the event, following a tried and tested planning schedule. Similarly there are things that need doing on the day itself - setting up the room, making teas and  coffees, supporting the judges, selling raffle tickets etc. What is that phrase, many hands make light work?

Might you be able to help? If you are interested please contact Liz Gibson on 0118 984 2012
