Queens 90th Birthday Tea Party
Saturday 23rd April
We had a great time at Theale Village Hall at our Queens 90th Birthday Party serving over 60 delicious traditional sandwich and cake teas!
The Queen herself would have been impressed by the quality of the food and organisation by Lesley, Cathy, Yvonne and many others and has even given it her thumbs up (see photo). We even managed to get a mention on BBC Radio Somerset!
Our Children's Fancy Dress was won by Clara Dawkins and all of the children took part in our Children's Quiz and Drawing competition, won by Abigail Stone .
We created "One's Quiz" for adults to test their knowledge of the Queen and her life which was won by a team led by Helen Richardson. Arthur Rice made everyone laugh with a spoof story of the day the Queen came to Snake's Lane to unveil Dave Bodley's new lawnmower (a village joke......; )
Cheddar Lions have kindly supported the purchase of a new PA system which the Flower Show will use on Show day and presented a cheque for £100 to President Phil Butterworth.
A great afternoon and enjoyed by one and all !
Ted's Taters in a Tub Competition
Yes it’s back for 2016!
After a successful launch last year, we are delighted to report that Ted’s Taters ** in a Tub Competition will feature in this year’s Theale Flower Show. What weight of potatoes can you grow in a 25 litre container?
On Show Day, you will be asked to turn out the container when asked to do so by the Judges in their presence and they will weigh your crop of potatoes. The competitor with the heaviest crop will be declared the winner and you'll be awarded the prestigious Ted’s Taters in a Tub novelty trophy.
If you are keen to enter this competition, click here to leave us your details. There's no obligation at all, we just want to gauge interest.
Start planting & growing in Spring 2016! Look out for entry forms or online registration here which will be published with the Competition Schedule in early July 2016.
