Peel Gardeners’ Association will hold its 73rd annual show on Thursday, August 20, at the Corrin Hall in Peel.

The show is taking place three weeks earlier than previous years to ensure that flowers, gardens and hanging baskets will be at their best.

There are classes for vegetables, flowers, pot plants, handicrafts, photography, floral art, fruit and honey and confectionery.

There will also be a wide range of children’s classes ranging from flowers, handwriting, photography, painting and computer handwork.

There are novice classes in the flower and vegetable sections.

There are more than 50 cups plus many other awards to be won, with some of the cups dating back to the 1940s.

After a lapse last year, the garden and hanging basket competitions will again take place and this year the competition has been extended with two new classes.

A cup will be awarded for the best allotment, plus another cup for the best community project.

The closing date for the garden and hanging basket competitions will be Saturday, August 15, with judging taking place on Monday, August 17.

Entries can be accepted at Peel Town Hall or contact Bert Quayle on 843157.

Entries for all other classes can be brought to the hall on Wednesday, August 19, between 6pm and 9.30pm.

For schedules and any further information contact Bert or secretary Margaret Kennaugh on 803269.
