The Horticultural Show

In true Briantspuddle village tradition, the annual Bladen Social Club’s Horticultural show is always a great success but in this coronavirus year something different had to be arranged! A photogrpahic competiton was held together a gardens competition the results of which can be seen by using the link below:

In normal times The Village Hall and Bladen Social Club open their doors to welcome old and new entrants into the show. Light refreshments are available in the social club, with barbeque and various charitable stalls outside.

The main event in the Hall attracts many entries ranging from the traditional fruit and vegetables, to skilled arrangements of flowers, plants and foliage. These are presented in many ways, usually with a special theme. The high quality of entries for the home products section of cakes jams and chutneys, along with handicrafts such as hand knitting, prove that despite the fast world in which we live, traditional skills have certainly not died out. The photography section brings out the would-be David Baileys!

Thanks to all the participants – why not make a date in your diary for next year’s event on the first Saturday in August.
