We are awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service

Swallowfield Horticultural Society, the organiser of the Swallowfield Show, is very proud to announce that it has received a 2018 Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The citation for the award reads:

“Promoting gardening and organising events for the benefit of the community and local charities”

Receipt of this award is testament to the enthusiasm, hard work and dedication of members of the Society, volunteers and friends over many years of successful events and activities.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved.

We get a Lottery Grant!

Thanks to the hard work of our Treasurer and Webmaster, we are very pleased to announce that we have been very fortunate to have been awarded a Lottery Grant which will enable us to really revamp the entrance gate at the Show, enabling people to pay by credit / debit card (inc contactless) as well as take advance purchase tickets  at any queue.

By utilising Ipads and printers, connected via a 4G wifi router we hope to make the entrance to the Show as smooth as it possibly can be.
