Horticultural Society Summer Exhibition Community Event

Saturday 21st August at St Michael’s Church


Due to the uncertainty around COVID rules for the rest of 2021, we have decided to hold a Summer Event on 21st August, 12 midday - 4pm at St Michael's Church, Aston Clinton. This will replace the normal Summer Show and will take the form of an exhibition rather than a competition. The exhibition is open to the whole community, all ages & abilities – why not give it a go! Show off your skills.

There will be a wide range of categories based broadly on the ones from the Summer Show and catering for everyone from novice to expert. We will also be offering refreshments, a plant and book sale, and raffle as well as the exhibition so it should prove to be a fun afternoon. 

Below are the exhibition categories –



  1. Village Basket - collection of fruit and vegetables grown by exhibitor, basket not to exceed 50cms length

  3. Master class - three types of vegetable plus a vase of flowers.
