Chairman’s Welcome - I can hardly believe that we are announcing the 74th Frenchay Flower Show.
We were fortunate enough to have a splendid day for our 73rd and of course are hoping for the same this year. Attendance was up on the year before. This could have been helped by bigger and better signage and of course another wonderful day weather wise. However ,whatever the weather the show will always go on, one way or another ! The excellent attendance has enabled us to increase our reserves and allowed the Frenchay CIC to support some of the charitable and non profit making groups within the community.
The day was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Sadly ,our Lancaster Bomber Fly Pass was cancelled due to a low cloud base , but in any event we all got excited by the prospect of what would have been a wonderful sight, frequently watching the sky, ever hopeful!
We were wonderfully entertained once again our local Choir, the ever popular Marshfield Brass Band and the new addition of a Wind Band adding yet another layer of enjoyable music to our tradition of 'A Great Day Out' The Vintage Cars hosted by The Frenchay Museum proved ,once again, to be one of our most popular attractions and are supporting us yet again in 2017. Thank you.
We will never be able to thank enough everyone who contributes to the show, from those of you who submit entries, (without whom there would be no show,) the Judges who make all those anxiously awaited decisions and the WI who continue to amaze us with their dedication to the delicious cream teas . form an orderly queue please!! The Committee ,year on year, supported by so many volunteers behind the scenes are an indispensable group, so very special thanks go to you all for giving so much of your time and effort.
We look forward to giving you a warm welcome in 2017 and very much appreciate your continued support. Here's to another 'Great Day Out'
Thanks once again
