MESSAGE FROM THE ONION SHOW MANAGER
(from the 2019 Onion Show Schedule)
As I sit to write this message early in January I would like to wish you a happy New year and a successful growing season a head.
This time last year we had had 2 reasonable falls of snow in Gloucestershire not a flake so far, it is quite mild and dry at moment.
Entries last year in all sections were up on the previous 2 years. Exhibitors last year found it hard to grow any decent leeks because of the hot summer. In total entries were up by 40, moving in the right direction.
Hopefully we will see some familiar faces return to the Newent onion show this year as the N V S Welsh branch show is the week before the last 2 years it been on the same day.
I thank everyone for their support last year, and as we approach the 24th year of the Onion Show I would like to encourage past and new exhibitors to enter the onion show this year
It is your efforts presented on the show bench that will enable this unique show to carry on in future years.
As with any event this years show is in the planning stage, many months before the actual date and is dependent on sponsors and helpers to ensure the day runs as smoothly as it can. We are grateful for your continued support.
If you feel you can spare some time on the day please let me know.
Any queries please contact me;
