Get Planning for 2018

It’s a cold, wet December day in Tonbridge, and warmer days seem a long way away, so it’s just the right time to start planning what to do next Spring at our Show.

I’m delighted  to say that we already have over half of the places reserved in our Craft Marquee, so if you would like to be sure of yours, please register your interest as soon as possible.

The outdoor arena pitches are also starting to fill up, with the welcome return of many “old faces”, and we look forward to hearing from more of you as your thoughts turn to your plans for next year.

Until then, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Summer’s slowly waning

It’s a wet Wednesday in late August, which rather sums up the way it has been ever since the schools broke up, with the exception of an uncharacteristically hot Bank Holiday weekend.

From a gardener’s point of view, this has been welcome here in West Kent after an exceptionally dry nine months. The allotment has had record bursting quantities of berries on the fruit bushes and canes, and I have even donated some of my potato crop to the Tonbridge Baptist  Church for community lunches, such was its success!

Thoughts are now turning to planning for next year’s Show, especially as we re-brand to more fully promote our wonderful Craft Marquee, while not losing sight of the  best possible offerings for gardeners.

First updates on this will follow next month, so please check back from time to time to keep up to date.
