Hinton Parva Flower Show

Roll up for this years Hinton Parva Flower Show on Saturday 8th August . Open to all residents in Hinton and Bishopstone .  We have some new items this year but lots of favourites . Look out for the Schedule which give you all the information and choices. Our independent specialist Judges are standing by and straining at the leash to  get started . Lets give them plenty to look at and adjudicate.

When you are out with your camera this summer , make sure to take a few shots of the Market . It might be local or far away on holiday . A Market always conveys the character of the region or country .

Scotch Eggs have made a re-appearance after a long absence . They are now making a comeback on the High Street – but we can do better. Described this week in one national newspaper as Rusty Cannonballs. They have been known to bring out huge smiles in young children .

Check out what’s good for you and have a practice run . The Entry Form and Maderia Cake Recipe will be with you very soon through your letter box.

Good Luck.

Howard. (Show Secretary).
