Blooming Purbrook!

The annual Purbrook Horticultural Society Summer Show, held at Crookhorn College showed that despite the atrocious growing conditions, members managed to put on a spectacular display.

This year showed an increase in new exhibitors showcasing their talents which resulted in some even being awarded a trophy, a pleasing indication of the health of the Society.

Visitor numbers also on the increase meant that the wonderful catering team were kept extremely busy providing Coffee, Tea and delicious slices of home made cake which in turn led to a very busy homemade Jam and Cake stall as visitors wished to take some home!

The quality of exhibits, much admired by visitors was true vindication for members’ hard work, dedication and determination to produce items for the Summer Show. So, with the success ringing in their ears can they rest on their laurels? Now the Spring Show booked for Sunday 24th March 2019 at Deverell Hall, Purbrook and schedules now available means the hard work begins again to produce even more Blooming Purbrook! prize winning blooms!

Bulbs available to purchase and further details available at the Trading Store situated on the London Road Purbrook adjacent to Purbrook east allotments open on Saturdays 09.30 – 11.30 or at
