Annual Schedule 2016
Thank you for taking the time to look at our show schedule for 2016. Within this brochure,
you will find all the information that you will need to enjoy our shows either as an exhibitor
or simply just to view the amazing amount of produce and exhibits on display.
Westerham has a wonderful community tradition and we are delighted to once again be
holding both shows at Churchill School.
As a society our aim is to provide an opportunity for all levels of horticultural interest and as
a result, all classes are open to both members and non–members.
We hope to see you at one of our events.
