Gardening is good for you…
The aim of our association is to foster an interest in gardening in Comberton .
We hope to achieve this with our Plant Sale in May and an Open Show in September.
The Show has classes for Vegetables, Fruit , Flowers, Handicrafts, Cookery, Photography, Art and Wine Making.
The Show Brochure is distributed to all houses in Comberton during August.
We also hold a Best Kept Allotment competition, the winner is awarded the Watt’s Silver Salver.
Judging alternates between the Long Road and South Street allotment sites; the Long Road plots will be judged in 2023.
After the Covid disruptions of 2020/21 we were able to return to a full programme of events in 2023; our diary for the year is as follows:-
- Plant Sale: Sunday 14thMay at 10.30am in the Village Hall
