Autumn must be on its way! The Whaley Bridge Show and Garden Society Show is on Saturday 10 September, starting at 1pm. The venue for this celebration of garden produce, flowers, baking and arts and craft is the Whaley Bridge Bowling Club. Admission is free.
There are 94 different competition sections, ranging from ‘four potatoes white’ to ‘best buttonhole, carnation excluded’ or ‘best home-made chutney’. There are sections for handicrafts, photography, painting and homecrafts.
The children’s section is sponsored by the Rose Queen Festival committee, and includes such things as edible necklaces, animals made from vegetable or fruit and painted eggs.
Attractions also include cream teas, tombola and raffle and a public auction at the end of the show (about 4pm, just after the prize presentations.)
