It’s your chance to bloom at flower show

Evesham Editorial 16th Sep, 2017   0

GREEN-FINGERED Evesham residents have been invited to showcase their talents at the first annual Hampton Flower Show.

The event is set to make its debut on Saturday, September 30 on Pershore Road opposite the farmer shop and a rallying call has gone out to Vale residents to get involved and support the newest event on the town’s calendar.

Local councillor Ged Bearcroft and a committee of local residents have made the idea for a show a reality and hope the community event will bring together residents in Hampton and the surrounding area.

Should the idea be a succces, organisers hope the flower show will become a permanent fixture on the calendar.




Creative St Andrews CE First School youngter Erin Lilley has already put her name in the frame for success by scooping success in the competition to design the events logo (pictured above).

Her school friends were all provided with a sunflower seedling and are now in taking part in competition to grow the tallest.


The event has been supported with grants from Wychavon District Council, Evesham Town Council, John Martin Charity, Bellway and Bloor Homes.

Caring local businesses have lent their support to the event and a Grand Raffle will be drawn at the show.

Among the packed programme of events on the day is a marquee housing the fruit, flower and vegetable growing competitions along with crafts, home baking, floral art, home made brews and beverages, preserves.

The competition is open to all ages, with a dedicated children’s section for younger growers, and is free to enter.

Points will be awarded for first, second and third in each category and the entrant with the most points will be declared the Show Winner.

Entry forms for the event are available from the Hampton Farm Shop, Hampton Chippy, Hampton Spar, Hampton Working Men’s Club and the Cider Mill.

A bar, cream tea tent, BBQ, games, art and craft stalls, cimbing wall, face painting and a chance to make your own smoothie will also be on the menu.

Local groups will be exhibiting on the day and there will be a specific section to provide local information about the heritage and history of Hampton and the surrounding area

Entry onto field is free and admission into marquee to view exhibits will be £1. Parking is limited so visitors are asked to walk if possible.
