Hillcroft School We have been invited to participate and provide an entry for judging! The shows are a celebration of local flower and vegetable growing, cookery and flower arranging. We can stage a table exhibit, the theme for a 6 feet by 2 feet table exhibit is '150 years of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. It should be a display of produce and/or handicrafts, by an accredited organisation. (The Kenley WI and Beechwood Women's Group have been previous entrants. The new Caterham Valley WI has pledged to enter this year.) Details will be sent out via email
That’s quite a lot to get us started, luckily we have a large group of willing helpers, so with a shared load we can accomplish all this and have a lot of fun doing so.
Details will follow for all these events with a sign up sheet and a request for cookie and Cake Pop makers etc.
