Black Isle Horticultural Society - 2017 Sumer Show, Coffee Morning and Plant Sale

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

The evenings are getting longer, the growing season is starting in earnest, 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.

This year we’re again having a Coffee Morning and Plant Sale in the Church Hall, Rose Street, Avoch, on Saturday 27thth May. This is an important fund-raising event for the Society, and I hope that you will be able to attend, tell your friends and family about it, and find something at the plant and produce stall. If you’ve got any surplus plants, or can raise some seedlings that we can sell on the stall, they’ll be very welcome, as will donations of baking, and prizes for the raffle.

We’ll get back in touch nearer to the date of the Coffee Morning with further details, but if you have any queries, please get in touch.
