PREPARATIONS are well under way for Ilminster Flower, Fruit, Vegetable and Craft Show held next month.

The show is at Ile Youth and Community Centre in Frog Lane on Saturday, August 2, from 2.30pm.

Ilminster WI will serve light refreshments throughout the afternoon, with a raffle and auction following the awards at about 4.30pm.

The hall is open 6.30-7.30pm on Friday, August 1, for people who would like to enter but cannot set up on Saturday morning.

The show is open to everyone, including people in surrounding villages and hamlets, with the aim of making it a community event.

Classes include fruit, flowers, floral art, vegetables, domestics, home-made wines and brews, and crafts, including photography.

They suit all ages and all abilities and include several classes for young people and a men-only class.

Admission is free but donations at the door would be welcome. For more information call Margaret Excell on 01460-54043.

  • Show organisers apologise that the classes printed for the photography section in this year’s schedule are the same as in 2013.

The classes should read: My Pet, A Single Flower and A Day by the Seaside.
