Worstead school hosts its first horticultural show

It's time to dig up those giant carrots and cut your heaviest marrow in time for Worstead Primary School's inaugural horticultural show.

And if prize veg are not your thing, then there's the chance to impress judges with baking, jam, photographs or poetry.

With 84 catagories to enter, there's the chance for young and old to stand a chance of winning a certificate at the show on Sunday, October 17 at Worstead Village Hall.

The show is the idea of new head Eve Reynolds, who has been keen to involve the school in more community events.

She said: 'This is an old tradition spearheaded by Worstead School to bring together the whole community and we very much hope that it will be well supported.'

The event is being put together by the Friends of Worstead School, who have helped raise thousands of pounds for the youngsters over the years. And all the money raised from this event will be going to Worstead Day care Centre and Quidenham Children's Hospice.

The show is open to the public from noon. Awards will be presented at 1pm, followed by an auction of produce at 2pm.
