The Highworth Produce and Craft Show  8th September 2018

How differently we experience the passing of time. For some, with few demands in their day, it can seem nearly endless.  For others there’s just not enough of it in the day for all they hope to do.  Maybe the weather makes a difference too.  We may feel that we have been cooped up indoors by bad weather for the past weeks and there is no pressing need to be outside working in the garden when it’s cold and grey.

I hope, as you read this, that these times are passing. A little warmth and some sunshine do help most people to feel more energetic and hopeful.  If you are gardeners you will know that time speeds up appreciably in the Spring.  The optimum times for preparation and sowing of both flower and vegetable seeds are suddenly upon us and pass all too quickly.  Miss the moment and it never seems possible to catch up.

So I am hopeful that I can encourage you to turn your thoughts to entries for the Highworth Produce Show in September.  As you begin your gardening, give a thought to what you might grow to enter in the show.  It’s the right time now to plan ahead for a prize-winning crop, be it flower, fruit or vegetable.

When it comes to craft entries for our show there’s no question of missing the moment but it might be a good idea to plan ahead at this time. If you have a skill or a hobby that you enjoy, why not get an entry ready for the Show?  In the Summer there are often more calls on our time and it would be good to have something ready to enter when the time comes.

Photographers can always be on the look-out for the perfect shot to enter.  Subjects for this year’s show are: Doors, Urban Spaces and Orange.

If you have a look at the website at and at Highworth Link’s Facebook page you can keep up to date with all the various classes in the Show.  Both adults and  children are very welcome and will find a class for their own particular skill or interest.  Just don’t  let time slip away from you, now that Summer is not far away!
