Due to the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic our Flower Show for 2020 was cancelled.
However in its place we held a virtual Flower Show.

2017 Flower Show
We are delighted that John Chapman took on the very important role of Show Secretary which this year was held on 12th AUGUST 2017. See report and photos from the Weston Mercury.

2016 Flower Show
Thanks to our main sponsors, BID & Weston Town Council, we returned to The Town Square again this year. The weather was very kind to us and the number of visitors was greater than last  year. The standard of entries was high despite a difficult growing year. Entry numbers were on a par with the previous year, handicraft entries were lower but photography entries were higher.
It was good to see some new names on the list of winners.
There were plants for sale, and a tombola that attracted many customers all day.
Our visitors were also impressed by the display “The MadHatter’s Tea Party”. The winning entries in the schools’  “Plant  a Wheelbarrow Competition” were on show.

The 2015 Flower Show was held on 8th August at The Italian Gardens, Town Square, Weston super Mare.

There were a number of changes to the schedule including;
In the vegetable classes - one for the longest cucumber and one for a selection of herbs.
For flowers one for a specimen orchid.
There was a Master Gardener class sponsored by Rev Steve Hartree to test your skills.
Men had two baking challenges –
one for butterfly cakes and the other for Victoria Sponge cake.
Photographers were challenged by one for Wild Weather and one for Humour.
In Handicraft we added a class for an item of crochet and children decorated a pebble and made butterfly cakes.
