Black Isle Horticultural Society - 2017 Sumer Show

Graham Sullivan, Secretary, Black Isle Horticultural Society, writes:

The growing season is in full swing, and so the Black Isle Horticultural Society Summer Show isn’t that far away. This year it will be held on Saturday 12th August in our usual venue, the Gordon Memorial Hall, Rosemarkie, and the Show Schedule is attached. To encourage people who haven’t entered the show before, we’ve introduced a Novice section for new exhibitors, so if you know anyone in that category who might be interested, please let them know about it.

If you have any queries, please get in touch.
