Usually, by the end of February there is a glut of daffodils, but this year, due to the really cold weather, they are a bit slow in coming through. Fingers crossed this week the Village Hall will be awash with daffodils and other Spring flowers. Apart from the customary Cut Flowers, Pot Plants and Vegetable sections there are a number of other classes that will suit most peoples’ tastes and abilities.

The main Floral Art title is “Over The Rainbow” and the men only title is “Royal Air Force 100th Anniversary” - so something to interest everyone. There is a good selection of classes in the Domestic Section including a “Beatrix Potter Tea Party” and a Carrot Cake to view. Also some interesting items in the Handicraft, Photographic and Young Gardeners sections. Those taking part in the show, the staging of Entries is between 8.00 a.m. until 10.15 a.m. For more details of classes or information in general please contact the secretary Email: [email protected] or Visit the Society’s Website:

RURAL PAST TIMES: Rural Past Times takes place on the second weekend in August each year in the grounds of Pestalozzi Village, Sedlescombe.

It would involve one meeting per month in the grounds of Pestalozzi plus a few days in August when the event is held.
