Swanland Show

                    Hot News       Last Updated: Sunday 14th January 2018




The date of Swanland Show 2018 will be Saturday 8th September and it will be held at St Barnabas Church Hall.  The Floral Art Judge and the Photography Judge have both confirmed their availability.

The Annual Plant Sale is planned for Saturday 5th May and the next Committee meeting will take place on Thursday 22nd February.  It is that this meeting that we discuss and agree the classes for the 2018 Show in September.


We have lost three Committee members over the year so we would like to invite a few others to come on board and join our little band.  The duties are not arduous; three meetings a year plus the Plant Sale and Show Day itself are the principal activities.  If you are willing and able to volunteer your services, even if only to help out on Show Day, please feel free to contact any committee member or email me at swanlandshow@gmail.com


At our recent AGM, Ruth Colville became our new Secretary; Jean Foster has stepped down from this role after many years but will continue as a Committee member.

Four of the trophies that were presented will need new bands putting on to the bases.  If the recipients of these trophies (Harrop Cup 13, Pearson Cup 17, Hasberry Cup 24 and Selles Cup 33) would like to return them to Tony Featherstone then we will arrange for the bands to be fitted at our expense.
