THE Uplyme & Lyme Regis Horticultural Society has launched the programme and schedule for its 93rd Summer Flower and Produce Fair, to be held on July 9 from 1pm to 5pm at Uplyme Village Hall and the King George V Playing Fields.
Jo Benke-Smith (pictured above left), the society’s chairperson, and Fiona Walker (right), vice-chair and lead organiser of the Summer Flower and Produce Fair, took advantage of the recent warm, sunny weather to launch the programme and schedule on site.
This year the society is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and, in recognition of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, has chosen trees as the theme of the show.
Many of the show’s 147 competition classes reflect this and there are opportunities for everyone – experienced or novice – to take part. Entries are free with full details of the show classes and rules to be found in the programme.
Any surplus from the show will support three charities – The Woodland Trust, Uplyme United Charities/Uplyme Community Fund and Headlight Action East Devon.
Copies of the schedule and programme can be obtained free of charge from Uplyme Village Stores, Raymonds Hill Post Office and Ginger Beer in Lyme Regis. It can also be downloaded from the society’s website ulrhs.wordpress.com
