To mark the 110th anniversary of the Society’s foundation in 1909, there will be a special class at the June Show that both adults and children of any age can enter, namely class 59a, an iced and decorated cake from your own recipe (imagine yourself winning Bake-Off). See the Members’ Handbook for details. Please spread the word so that there is a big display of cakes to celebrate this important occasion.

Regulations - together with some handy hints - can also be found in the handbook. If you are new to showing, the Show Coordinator will be happy to explain anything you need to know beforehand, and on the day of the show there are always committee members around in the hall during the entry period, who will be pleased to help.

The subjects for the photography competitions, which are open to adults and children of all ages, are: 1) The Suburb in Spring and 2) The Way In (June Show), and 3) Weeds are Flowers Too and 4) Windows (September Show). Bakers intending to enter the shows will find subject headings and recipes for this year's baking competitions in the members' handbook.

There are also classes for Juniors aged from under five to 12+ at both shows, including miniature gardens..
