A Fowlmere gardener has penned a poem urging the community to support the village gardening club's annual show.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
