Some new features promise to make this an event not to be missed.LYN BRADBURY March 12, 2014 4:22am
Who couldn’t resist an afternoon of flowers, images and music? If that sounds like you then the Seymour Garden Club’s annual show might be just the ticket.
The show, including an exhibition of photographs, will be held at the Anglican church hall in Anzac Ave from noon to 4
A new facet has been introduced, with musical items and live background music throughout the day. Last year many people enjoyed sitting comfortably, sipping a cuppa, demolishing a scone or two and absorbing the sensory delights of the music and the impressive display of entries in the competitions.
This year Telegraph editor Chalpat Sonti will be guest speaker and music will be provided by harpsichordist Peter Hagen with Mitchell Voices in Harmony. For all that, a prize presentation and raffle draw, the small admission fee of $2 is very reasonable.
Of course, a show and exhibition don’t just happen — without entries in the various sections it’s just a Devonshire tea, nothing very special.
Grab a schedule from the places listed below and decide what you’ll enter. With 120 sections, there will be at least one you can try. Maybe you’ll even win a prize or two (50c up to $20). All you do is ring up on April 10 and tell us what you are entering, then on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning (by 9.30
There is also a plant stall outside so you may find something interesting to take home for your garden. Prices are ridiculously cheap so many bargains are to be had.
The Garden Club holds the show to promote itself (yes, you can join), inspire people to try something new in their own gardens, get out there and take a few photos, and put on an enjoyable event.
This year’s photo subject is A Flower (or truss of flowers). Your group/club can win $20 down to $5, or the individual prizes, including for juniors, are $10 for first down to $2.50 for third. Camera Club members and ordinary ‘‘snappers’’ are welcome to enter.
Inspired? Well, pick up a schedule at the following places in Seymour; Seymour Telegraph office, Veneto Blu or Cafe 96 in Station St, Aramintas Tearooms, the Visitor Information Centre or Seymour Garden Centre in Tallarook St precinct, U3A (near the indoor pool), Seymour Library or Doug’s Hot Bake in Anzac Ave and the office of Cindy McLeish MP or Cafe R and B in Wallis St.
More information, including advice on entry requirements, can be obtained from show secretary Lyn on 5796
Without the generous support of Cindy McLeish and staff for publishing, and many wonderful businesses, the Garden Club couldn’t have such a large show so thanks to them all. See you on April 12.
