Flower Produce and Handicraft Show
The Grimsargh Flower Produce and Handcraft Show is a traditional Village Show with all the usual classes for fruit, vegetables, flowers, plants and produce. There are also classes for arts, crafts and photography together with a children's section.
The Show takes place every year on the second Saturday in August. The next Show will be on Saturday 10th August 2013. Hundreds of entries come in from the village and outlying areas and a lovely day is had by all.
The Show is entering its Twenty Fourth Year and is organised by a small and dedicated Committee. While they know what they are doing, and the event runs like clockwork, they would always welcome new ideas or a new member - if you are interested, contact Eileen Murray: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01772 655812.
