New Forest & Hampshire County Show 2019

Date: 18th April, 2019


In our latest newsletter sent out April 2019 we have put feelers out to The Allotment Holders of Andover to see who would like to attend The New Forest & Hampshire County Show this year. This looks to be a fantastic day out & there will be an array of activities and events to look at & The Vegetable Society will have a show tent brimming with varieties of vegetables as they will be hosting their National Championships at the showground this year!

This year we are hoping to arrange a trip for our lovely allotment holders to The New Forest & Hampshire County Show. This has been put out to everyone via our latest newsletter issued in April 2019.
Having been to many a County show myself I am extremely excited as they always promise to be the best days out & we will be able to see The National Vegetable Society hold its Championship at the showground which is brilliant!

Whether you are an avid vegetable grower yourself or like to dabble in the art of growing cress on the window sill like me, then I am certain this will be fascinating to witness! People come from far and wide to take part in this competition and we are sure to see all vegetables great & small. I am sure you can get some tips from the crème de ‘la crème of vegetable growing to take away and use within your own plots too.
Besides this there will be so much more to see and so !

Once we have enough interest and an idea of rough numbers I am going to try and get a group discount & if we can, apply for funding to get a minibus to this event making it accessible to people who don’t drive.


If you are interested please let us know, contact Nikki or Fern and we can add you to the list of interested allotmenteirs!
