MESSAGE FROM THE ONION SHOW MANAGER
(from the 2022 Onion Show Schedule)
As I sit to write this message early in February I would like to wish you a belated happy New Year and a successful growing season ahead.
Although we cannot do anything about the weather we always seem to talk about it a lot, gardeners and farmers a like always want the right amount of warmth, daylight, sunshine and moisture at the right time. Even on our local allotments we see more and more poly tunnels being used to try and create the right growing environment.
We never know what Mother Nature will throw at us next. As growers you always deliver lots of excellent exhibits. At the last show in 2019 the number of entries in all sections were very similar to the year before, except in the open classes which were up.
The last two years have been difficult for all of us, but gardening as proved it’s worth for mental and physical well-being during lockdown.
I thank everyone for their support in past years, and as we approach the 25th 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. Help us make this years show something special and worthy of its 25th year celebration.
As with any event this years show is in the planning stages many months before the actual day and is dependent on sponsors and helpers to ensure the day runs smoothly as it can. We are grateful for your continued support. If you think you can spare some time on the day before or on the day of the show please let me know.
