North Petherton Flower Show
The North Petherton Flower and Craft show has now been going for 116 years. Over the years the show has developed and moved with the times, it has moved from just being about flowers and vegetables to including a range of crafts and hobbies. The show is organized by a small group of volunteers, who meet during the year to plan the show and to fund-raise to be able to put on the show. The show is for the people of North Petherton and surrounding area to be able to show their items, have fun and on the show day see who really does have the longest runner bean!
The North Petherton Flower Show committee believe it is in the best interests of all volunteers, exhibitors, judges and visitors to cancel this year’s event.
The safety of all is very important at all times but even more so in these current circumstances, as we cannot guarantee social distancing for the foreseeable future we have all agreed the event planned for the 15th August will not go ahead.
We have built up our online presence over the last couple of years and would love to think we could have a virtual show online to show all of the entries that would have been in the show. We will not have any prizes or entry fees but would love to see your images which will be added to the website, northpethertonflowershow.com and to our Facebook page. Please send your images to email@example.com or contact us on Facebook. The images don’t need to be of anything in particular or match any of last year’s categories, we welcome pictures of your gardens and also any ideas for items to be included in future shows.
Please encourage your children to send in pictures, poems or crafts and we will be pleased to share, the images of rainbows around North Petherton have been lovely to see so let’s share them online. Get sending now, no need to wait until August.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who support the show every year and to the many volunteers and judges for their continued support, we send you all our best wishes.
