The Minstead Flower Show Society is affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society.
It organises an annual flower, fruit and vegetable show in the Village Hall, usually on the first Saturday in September.
This year’s show, the sixty-fourth, took place on Saturday 5th September 2015 which was another outstanding success thanks to lots of hard work by many. There were a bumper 610 entries, considerably up on last year, and a very high standard was achieved in all classes.
The Show was opened by Parish Council Chairman Mr Bill Andrews who also presented the Cups and Special Awards.
Special thanks go to the hard working committee of Colin Payne (Chairman), Janet Mitchell (Hon Secretary) and Tim Holt (Hon Treasurer) as well as the very many volunteers who helped with the detailed organisation, the teas, the raffles, the tombola and other attractions.
And a final thanks to all in the Community who took part, especially to the children for their wonderful array of exhibits.
Next year’s show will be on Saturday 3rd September 2016 (to be confirmed)
The Society’s Annual General Meeting will be held in the Hall on Tuesday 1st December 2015 at 8pm – all welcome!
