Visit Nunney is once again sponsoring the Writers Cup, one of many trophies and prizes to be won at the Nunney & District Flower Show on Saturday 2 September.
The show takes place on Saturday 2 September at Nunney village hall, with entries on view from 2.15pm and trophies presented at 4.15pm. Admission is free.
The Nunney & District Flower Show Committee hopes that participants from both inside and outside Nunney will take part.
There are no fewer than 141 different categories this year, including many new categories. These range from vegetables and pot plants to handicraft and bakery.
Children under the age of 16 can submit entries in 20 categories, including finger painting (3 years and under), plants, handmade birthday cards, drawings, muffins and decorated boxes.
There are many trophies available for the best entries in various categories. Men can receive the Stan Smith Trophy for the best meatballs in tomato sauce.
The judges can also award cups, salvers and trophies for the best flower arrangements, vegetables and many more categories. Rosettes will be awarded for outstanding exhibits in all sections.
This year’s event also features demonstrations, gardeners’ question time and a raffle.
