HORTICULTURAL SHOW – NEWPORT PAGNELL HORTICULTURAL SHOW

HORTICULTURAL SHOW

The NEWPORT PAGNELL HORTICULTURAL SHOW celebrates its 206th  year on Saturday 5th  September 2015.  We have been growing and showing since 1809. Yet even now the show continues to grow, year after year.

We don’t charge an entry fee to enter the various classes.  Instead we ask for donations from entrants on the day of the show.  Now is the time to start growing if you are entering the sections for flowers, pot plants, fruit or vegetables. But there is so much more to the show, from cakes and preserves to photographs and art work.  This year we have split up the art categories as follows:  original oil or acrylic paintings, original water colours, and original drawings.

Entry forms can be obtained from the Offices of the Newport Pagnell Town Council at 80 High Street, Newport Pagnell at the end of April or email towncouncilinfo@newport-pagnell.org.uk. Even if you aren’t submitting an entry, come and join us as a spectator. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome.

This year there will be two additional trophies awarded at the Horticultural show:

1. For the best front garden in Newport Pagnell – no entry form required.

2. For the best floral display by a pub in Newport Pagnell – simply confirm you wish to be considered for this competition.

We also have a few available allotment plots on our London Road Site for anyone interested.

Many School ‘Mums’ were treated to a touching Mother’s Day service during which the children sang special songs, recited poems they had written about their Mums and presented all of them with a tulip.

A special ‘Healthy Week’ initiative saw all 27 pupils exploring all sorts of different exercises and sports, including a tennis session with Nigel Willard Tennis, a rambling country walk and even the chance to try meditation.

Thanks go to the Friends of Stoke Goldington CE First School for funding the visit.

The Busy Bees in Early Years Foundation Stage rounded off their fantastic space topic when they became space detectives and galactic archaeologists by digging in moon sand to find space objects. The Busy Bees also enjoyed a ‘shapes walk’ around the village to identify shapes in their local environment.
