Mackleys to Support Small Dole Horticultural Society Summer Show

Organised by the Small Dole Horticultural Society, the 69th Small Dole Summer Show will be held on Saturday August 17th 2013 in the Mackley Sports Field. The show is open from 1.30pm, entry to the marquee commences at 2pm and the show will close at 5pm.

The 2012 Summer Show was very well supported and all participants and visitors enjoyed glorious weather in fact, some might say it was almost too hot! Lets hope for a repeat of that sunshine this year.

There will be stalls from local charities and societies, childrens’ amusements, music from the Patcham Silver Band and refreshments.
This really is a fun day out for the whole family. Why not bring along your beloved pooch and see if they can win the category of “Dog the judges would most like to take home” in the fun dog show at 2pm?
The marquee will hold the displays of local produce, handicrafts, photography and cooking that will be judged as part of the show’s events. The mouthwatering selection of cooking and preserves is worth a visit alone and if you don’t fancy entering yourself then why not check out the children’s sections? Its free to enter and the categories afford some excellent opportunities for your children to show case their skills and have some fun doing it.

If you would like to pre-register for any of the other categories then simply fill in the registration form and drop it, along with your registration fee to the show organiser as follows:
Tuesday 13th August – Registration of entries at the Village Hall 7-8pm

Whether you are planning on spectating, joining in, or would even like to offer your services as a category sponsor or donor there is so much to see and do at the Small Dole Summer Show.
