Horticultural society ready for Uplyme Summer Flower and Produce Fair

Uplyme Summer ShowUPLYME and Lyme Regis Horticultural Society’s Summer Flower and Produce Fair will take place at Uplyme Village Hall and on the King George V playing field this Saturday (July 9), from 1pm to 5pm.

This year’s theme is ‘Celebrating Trees’, which is reflected in many of the show’s 147 competition classes.

The marquee will see a panoply of horticultural, home produce, cookery and floral art displays, while craft and photography will be on show in the village hall.

Out on the playing fields, artisan skills, family entertainment and local charities are all well represented.

The entertainments programme has something for everyone. There will be a bouncy castle, llama walking and circus skills for the kids, a fun dog show for those with canines, musical performances from Lyme Regis Town Band and HiDDeN, plus line dancing and morris dancing.

Some great stalls reflect the emphasis on horticulture and artisans. Specialist plant stalls with acers, hostas, carnivorous plants and bee-friendly plants and seeds complement a range of locally grown plants.

Garden tools, plant supports, garden art and crafted wood sit alongside handmade pottery, textiles, art, preserves and specialist spinners and quilters.

Excellent cream teas, cakes and refreshments are available from the village hall, with ice creams and burgers available on the field.

Full details are on the website www.ulrhs.wordpress.com including the show schedule and programme.
