North Connel and District Horticultural Show

North Connel and District Horticultural Show

Established in 1949 the show has been a firm summer favourite with the community ever since.

Competition is strong between individuals, as well as between different parts of the parish as the shield is held by the place winning most points overall.

Funds are raised each May with one the best horticultural events of the year – the Plant Sale – which is a mad scramble for great well grown plants from gardens in the area, ready to bloom and harvest the year long.

The Show is held in August [27th August 2011] – and covers all parts of gardening – flowers, fruit, vegetables, preserving, baking, flower arranging and photography. The local children always put on a wonderful art display, as do local artists. With the finest in home baking and plants for sale, it really is an afternoon not to be missed.

The Current Committee for 2011 – 2012 is

  • Chair : Jane Eccles
  • Vice Chair : Fiona Miller
  • Secretary : Marie Grier
  • Treasurer : Allison McDougall
