Pett Flower Show – 25 July: Cancellation and Young People’s Classes

Because of the uncertainty of the current pandemic and the government lockdown regulations, it is with heavy hearts that the Pett Flower Show Committee have to announce the cancellation of our 2020 show. It is hoped that a downsized show can be held in the autumn for some of the classes that are not critical to the growing season.

In spite of the inspiration of the Gardening Club journal on Pettnet, the possibility of organising a complete virtual show is a step too far, but the Committee wish to encourage the younger generation to participate by entering photographs of exhibits in some of “Young People’s” classes, for which there will be prizes.

Further details of the Young People’s Classes can be read here Flower Show cancellation

Thank you Pett Refuse Collectors

Last week the Pett bin men helped me when I was late getting the rubbish out. I always get a thumbs up and a smile through the kitchen window from them and think we probably take their work for granted in this difficult time.
My neighbour Chloe has drawn a lovely poster for me to stick on top of my bin next week! With Chloe’s permission (and her parents!) I have made the poster available here https://bit.ly/pettbinpic if anyone would like to put a copy on their bin to express the village’s appreciation. If you do not have a printer at home you could always draw your own thank you note!
