Although the weather had been hot and sunny, on the day before the show, the rain set in and continued right up until the show opened at 12.30.  This did not deter the hardy however, and although the numbers attending were down on previous years, it was a delight to see so many people on the field. The children in their fancy dress, with the theme of the "Out Of This World" was a delight.  Natasha Kaplinsky opened the show and did an amazing job, encouraging children and parents alike, to join in the races. She also presented the cups and prizes at the end of the day. 

 

The committee would like to thank all those who supported the show, whether by entering the classes in the marquee, attending on the day, donating a raffle prize or advertising in our schedule.  Without you, the show would not be the success that it is.

 

For some time now, Emma at Shepherds Gate Farm has kindly allowed CHHS to use her field to hold the show.   Emma’s Livery business has now grown so that she is unable to offer us the use of the field going forward.  We cannot thank Emma enough for her support and generosity to the Flower Show over the years.

 

This of course means that the Flower Show needs a new home.  We would really like to hear from any local landowners who might be willing to offer us a field so that the much loved Coleman's Hatch Flower Show can continue to the benefit of the local community and the charities that it supports.  If you feel you might be able to help, please get in touch with our Chairman Kit on 07702 405844 or use our contact page and we would be happy to discuss options with you.

 

Our AGM takes place in Trinity Hall Coleman's Hatch on Monday 4th November 2019 at 7.30 We are recruiting new committee members and hope you might like to join us.
