Shows and Schedules

The society runs two horticultural shows for members and Allotment holders to exhibit their hard work and skills in a friendly competitive environment.

It’s not all about winning – it’s great fun to enter and show off your hard work.

Why not give it a go? The Shows Schedule can be requested on line by contacting Graham the Show Secretary at gc_139@hotmail.com or ask for a copy at the Trading Hut.

Allotment Holder's Show, Spud in a Tub and Refreshments at the Allotment Site
Sunday 14th July 2019
This show is especially for allotment holders to display what they have grown on site, but also includes the Spud-in-a-Tub competition which is for all members. Buy your 'spud' and tub 3 entries for £1 from the Trading Hut and start growing!

The “Gordon Bennett” Trophy is awarded to the grower of the greatest total weight of potatoes grown from a single seed potato. Each entry will be laid out on a tray, noting weight and number of potatoes. While the most pathetic entry will win the ‘Tryarda Trophy’.

This is a competition that pits family members against each other… but all in the name of fun! This year the winner will win BCHS £10 voucher.
