Wootton Courtenay Flower and Produce Show

The annual Flower and Produce Show is always a well-attended occasion in Wootton Courtenay, and the hall will be decked in full floral finery (along with some amusing vegetables).  The show doesn’t just encompass horticulture; there are judging categories for photography, sewing and embroidery, and baking too.

The topics for this year’s Photography Category are:

• Water
• Power
• Black & white, or sepia

The Needlework Category has a general theme of recycled materials, and the topics are:

• A storage item made from recycled fabric or textile. Anything from a pin cushion to a box.
• A knitted item of your choice from already-purchased or recycled wool (new purchase if absolutely necessary).
• Children’s category: A flower or tree made out of recycled materials; for example, recycled plastic or something out of Mum’s sewing box.

This year’s show is scheduled for the 4th of August, subject to government advice on social distancing due to coronavirus.  If the show is unable to go ahead as planned, photographs and needlework may be kept by and submitted for judging at next year’s show, so don’t let the crisis get you down – get your creative juices flowing.  And, of course, don’t forget to sow your vegetable seeds (if you haven’t already done so).
