Diary Dates









2021 Events

Listed below are events that ar currently scheduled to take place in 2021 which will have sweet pea and NSPS connections. Once again this year we invite you to include them in your leisure activities by making them a “day out”. Sadly all live events in 2020 were cancelled.  It is hoped that we will be able to return to live events in 2021.

2019 events were all interesting and successful and I am sure you will enjoy them in future. They are often more enjoyable when you participate in them. If you are a member your help and assistance is always welcome. If you feel you would like to be involved, please contact me and I will give you the details tomatherton1940@hotmail.co.uk 07887928777

We often require support on the day/days before the events and also at the closure. These events are our Society’s shop window to the public and we often enrol new members at them. If you already a member please support our Society by helping, or at least visiting some of them. Non-members are welcome to visit all events.

You will enjoy it!

Includes section for growers of less than 200 plants. 8 cups/shields + NSPS medal. Incorporated in open village show with vegetables, flowers, domestic etc.

The Annual Show which incorporates an Open Sweet Pea Show, has sadly had to be cancelled in 2021.
Those who have visited this event in the past will know that its success relies on not only many exhibitors from a wide area attending but also on large numbers of visitors to offset costs. The compact hall is usually very tightly packed. These reasons, combined with less helping hands being available this year have conspired to the decision. They hope to be back as normal in 2022.
