A Fowlmere gardener has penned a poem urging the community to support the village gardening club’s annual show.
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.”
