Burnham-On-Sea's 45th annual Horticultural Show this weekend

Entries have opened for Burnham-On-Sea Horticultural Society’s 45th annual show, which is set to take place this weekend (August 11th and 12th).

Green-fingered residents across the Burnham-On-Sea area are being invited to show off their gardening and craft skills at the event, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll.

David Bryant, Show Secretary, pictured, explained: "This is the ninth successive year we have held the event at the garden centre and we hope lots of people will come and see just how much fun gardening can be. We’ve also got sections for crafts and photography."

"The categories in which competitors are invited to enter include floral art, junior, domestic and handicraft, such as hand-made cards, crochet and knitted items, cross stitch and tapestry."

"People will also be able to enter sections for amateur photography, pot plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables."

Entrants will have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes such as cups, shields and medals in the competition. There will also be classes for children in two categories, under 11-year-olds and 11 to 16-year-olds.

The show will be open to the public on Saturday from 1pm until 6pm and on Sunday from 10am until 4pm. The prize-giving and awards presentation ceremony will be held at 3.45pm on the Sunday. Admission is free.

Details on how to enter, fees and a complete list of classes can be obtained from David on 01278 761111.
