Our Spring Show is on Saturday 25 MarchStaging is from 11.00 to 12.15, judging from 12.30 to 2.00.  The Show will open for viewing at 2.00 along with our cafe, serving tea and home made cakes. This year we will be presenting prizes at the earlier time of 2.30 in the side room, so you can continue to enjoy your tea and cakes. With spring starting later this year hopefully we will have a fragrant daffodil filled hall.  Details of all classes are in the schedule and available on our website.  Entries can now be made online (online form available on our show page) as well as handed in to the Fernhurst Centre by Thursday 23 March.  We have three classes for children up to age 14 - a spring garden in a container (any size you can carry!) a plate of decorated cupcakes, a jam jar of spring flowers.  Please make sure you leave a note beside the entry with your childís age and name. We have classes for photographers as well as jewellery/craft and design. Remember entry is free to all of the village. Do join us even if it is just for the cake.


Lawn Workshop: We are holding a lawn workshop at the Fernhurst recreation ground on Friday 28th April from 6-8 pm. Many thanks to John Allen for leading this. You too could have grass as immaculate as the cricket grass if you follow Johnís advice. Please contact Daphne on 653437 to book as soon as possible. This workshop is free to members and for non-members it is £3 each.
