ONE of the most popular dates in the event calendar is the Innerwick Flower Show when family and friends enjoy the many delights of the oldest flower show in the county.
It may be tempting fate, but the weather is almost always kind on Innerwick’s all important date - Saturday, August 4, 2012. This is the date for your diary - the 139th Innerwick Flower, Vegetable and Fruit Show.
The warm spring weather and the constant summer showers have made it a difficult year for gardeners, but nonetheless the flowers, fruit and vegetables are still growing well and organisers and competitors alike are busy preparing for this well-established and extremely popular Flower Show.
Innerwick will be decked in its finest, ready to welcome locals and visitors alike. The doors open at 2pm with an Official Opening at 2.15pm and then the fun begins. It is not just the adults who enjoy the magnificent displays of flowers, fruit and vegetables – the Juvenile Section will provide much fun and interest for young and old alike.
Each year this wonderful show grows and develops and this year will be no exception. A fun dog show, children’s entertainment, together with a selection of stalls and games always ensure children and adult’s alike have a happy, busy afternoon. Tranent Pipe Band will be in attendance, providing a wonderful selection of music whilst you enjoy a leisurely stroll around the varied stalls, or sit peacefully in the sun. The Fun Dog Show always provides much mirth and merriment and the entire day is a great occasion for the whole family – a great get together. Chris Wish, childrens’ entertainer will be on hand to keep us all amused.
It is to be hoped that a warm afternoon will encourage people to the refreshment tent but even if it is a little cooler a warming cup of tea accompanied by some of the delicious scones and cakes supplied are a must. Just in case this doesn’t fill the gap, don’t forget to visit the wealth of different stalls and purchase some wonderful home-baking and bric-a-brac.
Sponsorship is vital and Innerwick Horticultural Society expresses their gratitude and thanks to all who provide sponsorship, British Energy, Community Windpower, Thurston Holiday Home Park, Viridor and all the many individuals.
