Thornbury summer flower show on its way

August 10


Armstrong Hall

THORNBURY Horticultural Society is inviting exhibitors and visitors to its annual summer show.

Tracing its history back to a grand dahlia exhibition held at Thornbury Castle in 1838, the society has staged a show every year except the war years.

This year’s show will take place on August 10 from 2pm.

There will be classes for vegetables, flowers, pot plants, floral art, photography, cooking, crafts, children’s classes and there will be tea and cakes available.

The show will take place at the Armstrong Hall Complex in Thornbury.

Show schedules are available from the Garden Shop, T & J Owens, Town Hall and the society’s website.
