Barry Jones’ poem

The Fowlmere and Thriplow Gardening Club will hold their annual show

on Saturday, September 16, at Fowlmere Village Hall, don’t you know?

One pound is the adult entry fee

and children are allowed in for free

Doors open to the public after lunch at two

And Sir Graham could be awarding a prize to you

Come see exhibits of flowers, plants and fruit

Vegetables and handicraft to suit

Preserves, photographs and baking

Children’s models, poems and paintings!

Just have a go - entry forms from

There will be drinks aplenty and home bake to eat!

Raffle tickets to buy and the Tombola to beat!

Purchase a plant, a book or maybe a gnome

Bid on flowers or some produce to take home

A great afternoon is there to be had

Just turn off the TV and bring mum and dad.

Fowlmere and Thriplow Gardening Club has said this year’s event promises to be “first rate exhibit” of flowers, arrangements, plants, fruit, vegetables, home produce, handicraft and photographs.

Children will be displaying models, poems and paintings about nature – as entries are open-competition, anybody can enter.

Barry Jones, who wrote the verse, said: “The inspiration to rhyme comes from trying to help my grandchildren with their language skills.

“The show is a great afternoon to be enjoyed. Whether you enter or not, we look forward to seeing you there.”

The show is on Saturday, September 16, at Fowlmere Village Hall with doors opening at 2pm. Entry is £1 for adults, and children go free. Prizes will be awarded by Sir Graham Wynne CBE.
