Penicuik Horticultural Society
(Charity No SCO03929)

Hello from Penicuik Horticultural Society 

Many of you have been disappointed that for the last couple of years we were unable to hold our usual Spring and Autumn Shows.  The simple truth is that as we are all getting on in years we have found it more difficult to manage the physical effort although our enthusiasm is still evident.  We hope that the offers of help that we had will be honoured to make this job easier.

We are planning to hold a single, combined show slightly later in the year to avoid clashing with other local or national events.  We will break away from the traditional format and will discontinue the use of the old and somewhat tired trophies.

Our schedule is now available and includes Handicrafts and Home Baking in addition to the flowers, fruit and vegetables.  The competitions for Rainbows, Beavers, Brownies and Guides and the Rurals will also be included.

We hope to make this show more inclusive and accessible to all.  We want to see what you have been growing in your gardens or allotments without feeling intimidated by spectacular entries from more experienced growers.

There's always been good entries by the clever crafters and skilled bakers so we hope that these will continue.

We hope to have your support for this show which will be held at Ladywood Leisure Centre on SUNDAY 22 September.  We feel sure that you have the skills and talents to make it a success and are looking forward to seeing you there.  

If you would like further information please contact one of our committee members or phone our President on 01968 678173.
