The Schedule for the 83rd Leigh Flower Show is out now. You can download a copy here
This years event features a Scarecrow competition and increased prize money for the winners. Entries for the Flower Show have been in decline over the past few years. The organisers have made a lot of effort to make this years competition as inclusive as possible.
Alongside the traditional fruit and veg, there are categories for quirky vegetables, arts and crafts, photography, cookery and an expanded children’s section. Please download the schedule and have a go.
The entry form can be found as part of the schedule, but if you need an additional entry form you can download it here
Date of next event
We are waiting for details of the next event
The Leigh Flower Show Committee have announced the categories for the 2019 Photography section.
Chairman Brian Read said, “We hope that by announcing the categories early and by extending the number of classes, we will encourage many more people to enter. Last year, the winner of the landscape category and family group category were taken with a mobile phone! The competition is about imagination and not fancy equipment.”
The categories are:
Animals (Other than birds) -Lots of options here. Family pet, livestock, Zoo animals, African Safari?.
Family study – we all take photos of our family, let’s see them.
“Snow” – take a picture to remind us how beautiful things can look in winter.
A village feature – find the beauty in the village. No shortage of material here.
Architecture – Classic or modern
Flower/s – close up or view of an expanse of flowers.
Bird/s – close up of wild birds are difficult, so maybe think of other types…
Farming life – we’re surrounded by farms. Take a picture of what foes on.
A portrait – Cute children, people having fun, etc, etc
A Dorset landscape – we are surrounded by stunning landscape in Dorset, maybe pictures of Leigh to put on the website
People at work – take your camera to work day
