NEWTON PARK HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
The aim of the sale was boost our funds to enable our first class show to continue to be the best in the area and to also boost our membership.
The Weather was perfect on the day and the customers came flocking in. We raised £398 pounds on the day it could have been more but we ran out of things to sell. More donations next year please!
We have the money, now we need the support, this years show is on Saturday 1st September.
Don’t forget the society is entering the RHS George Munro Challenge cup this year. We will need a collection of 10 vegetable dishes, if you are able to donate a dish pleas let Christine or Andrea know. You do not have to take it to the RHS halls we will arrange it’s transport and staging.
