Since 1919, the aim of the Long Ashton Horticultural Society has been to promote flower and vegetable growing, and to bring people together to learn from each other. The centre piece of our year is our Annual Show, a community event, for villagers to share with each other the amazing things that they have grown, cooked, photographed or made.
The 95th Annual Show – Cancelled
Gradually lockdown is lifting, we can go out, visit the shops and meet up with a small number of friends. Gardens are opening and the old normality is slowly returning. But, the need to maintain social distancing is problematic as is planning for events.
Therefore, sadly we have had to cancel the Flower Show in September. This is the first time since 1945 that the show has been cancelled and this decision was not taken lightly, but the restrictions would have prevented many of the things which we feel make the Show –the refreshments, the ability for people to mingle and chat, the raffle and prize giving.
We are looking at a possible online Show, so watch out for news over the summer.
We must thank all those who kindly donated Raffle Prizes for the 2019 show
