UNDAUNTED by coronavirus, the Uplyme & Lyme Regis Horticultural Society has replaced its usual summer show with a virtual one. 

Having had to cancel their annual show due to the coronavirus pandemic, the society will now be holding an online event instead, going live on Saturday, July 11 at 1pm, the same time as the original show would have opened.

The virtual Summer Flower and Produce Fair will consist of galleries of photographs to be displayed on the Summer Show 2020 page of the society’s website www.ulrhs.wordpress.com.

There will be one gallery for each of 12 classes, covering flowers, fruit and veg, floral art, baking, art and craft, and photography.

The popular Potato in a Bucket competition will still run and there is a class for under 16 year olds, as well as two classes themed to reflect our lives under lockdown.

The show classes will be for fun and there will be no judging. A maximum of two entries is allowed per class. People are encouraged to start compiling their entries now for submission in July.

Entries need to be emailed as landscape images and must be submitted between Monday, July 6 and Wednesday, July 8. The photo galleries will be live on the Society website at 1pm on Saturday, July 11.

For further information about the classes and details of how to enter the show, visit www.ulrhs.wordpress.com
