Welcome to the Easton on the Hill 101st 'Virtual' Show.

We have received 87 entries from 26 entrants over 30 classes.  The show is displayed below over 3 presentations.  

The Society advised at the start of the show that there would be no official judging and no awarding of the usual trophies.  Last year was the Society centenary, in the same year shortly before the show a former Society treasurer and committee member, Harold Gregory, passed away.  Harold's commitment to the Society, among other village groups and activities, has been recognised with an award kindly donated by a villager.  The winner of Harold Gregory Centenary Award has been chosen by the committee.  We are also awarding the Banksian Medal and runner up prizes.

We do have one last class to go.  The sunflower competition for junior members.  Look out for instructions on how to enter at the end of the month.

Thank you to all our entrants this year, without whom there would be no show.  A special shout out to Olly Beardsall with 15 entries.  

Many thanks to Graham Lilley for supporting the publishing of the show on the website.

See you next year!

HORTICULTURAL AND CRAFTS SOCIETY COMMITTEE



Happy New Year from the Horticultural & Crafts Society


It’s a Happy New Year to all from the Horticultural and Crafts Society and we’re very much looking forward to 2022 and the 103rd Annual Show.  Nominations have been put forward and I can confirm that, with strong support from the existing committee and the new nominations, the Society looks set to continue in what it does best, putting on a SHOW!


We would still like to hear from anyone who is interested in planning or volunteering at events.  Nominations for all officer and committee positions remain open (Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, Show Co-ordinator and general committee).


If you would like to help with the 2022 show, join the committee or come and see what it’s all about please put Tuesday 18th January 2022, 7pm, in your diary for the Society Annual General Meeting.  The AGM will, as usual, be a Wine & Cheese evening and we encourage all members to attend to join discussions on the future of the Society.


All of these plans are, of course, dependant on Government guidelines in the current pandemic so we will watch these closely and re-arrange accordingly.

If you would like more information in advance of the AGM or would like to be nominated for an officer position please do call Joy directly on 07718900007.


Best wishes for the festive season and 2022.



Joy Forster - Chairman
