Although the Marnhull Fest will not take place in 2021, the Flower Show will be happening!

We are busy making plans for the Flower Show which we hope to hold on Saturday 17th July.  It is that the timetable will be changed slightly this year to enable us to adhere to the restrictions in place due to Covid-19; more details to follow at a later date.  In the meantime, we thought you might like to start considering your entries for the Show and the following list might give you some inspiration.  The Vegetables, Fruit and Flower classes will be very similar to previous shows.
