King’s Sutton Garden Club Show 2021 – Statement on Changes

Welcome to our show with a difference this year! When our Committee began planning this year’s Show back in February, it was impossible to know if it could run because of COVID restrictions and there is even some doubt now. 

The Committee decided to compromise this year and present a much simpler and smaller show, thereby saving a lot of expense and hard work if it did not run.

This year we offer you a miniature Show – no admission or class entry fees. There will be no Cups awarded, just simple 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards in each class, judged by local independent judges. There will also be a Best in Show award. We do ask you to support us with your entries in these difficult times. There is a lot of flexibility in many of the classes.

Enjoy a relaxed afternoon visit with a spin on the Tombola, browse the produce for sale on the garden stall, bring along your own to help support the Garden Club. There are refreshments available and also a Craft Fair at the same time, in the Small Hall. We look forward to welcoming you on August 14.

Retiring Show Secretary, June Smith
