Gardening Show 2014 no4

It's almost that time again! Less than a month to go now to the Tarvin Gardening Society's annual Horticultural Show at Tarvin Community Centre on Saturday 15th August. Time to dig out the gardening gloves and dust off the aprons.

The show is open to everyone, including non-members and children. There is no charge to exhibit but there is a £1.00 entrance fee at the door. Free for children under 16. Doors open at 2.00pm. Cream teas and refreshments available, and of course, a raffle.

This year we have altered the schedule slightly by taking out some off the less popular classes and introducing some new ones.

The famous Tarvin Bun Loaf recipe has been modernised so now you only mix for one loaf instead of one and a half!!!

We are including a novice section in the Floral Art this year for those who have not won a first prize in this class and there is a special section for children covering 3 age groups. The show schedules, with recipes, are available from the secretary at 7 Hunters Drive or selected village shops and garden centres. So, all you budding gardeners and bakers, now is the time to get your ideas together for your exhibits.

For those of you who have never seen the show, you will be amazed at the sights and colours as you enter the hall. We look forward to seeing you on the day, good luck.

It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...

Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
