Show Day 2014 - what a great day!
We had a lovely day on Saturday 6th September last with our new format Flower Show!
Instead of one single large marquee, we distributed the range of entries across a number of smaller marquees centred on Theale Village Hall and Christ Church Theale. In particular everyone who visited liked the Flower Exhibits being shown in Christ Church; it was somehow appropriate for a glorious display.
Also, we tried out a number of different types of competitive Exhibit this year, for example our Potato Challenge - what's the largest weight of potatoes can you grow in a 25 Cl container? Read about our winners here....
More photos and information soon.
New Competition Class for 2014
We staged a special additional competition at this year's Flower Show called the "Potato Challenge" !
It was for the heaviest weight of potatoes that can be grown 25 litres of soil or compost. On Show Day each entry was judged by weight (excluding the 25 litres of soil or compost, of course) and the winners were.
Want to enter this competition in our 2015 Show?
Ideally you need to find a suitable container for the 25 litres of compost or soil and bring your entry to the Flower Show in it
Competitors must make sure that the potatoes are delivered to the Show Tent and must remain in the 25 litres of soil or compost before weighing.
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 2015! Look out for entry forms which will be published with the Competition Schedule in early July 2015

Want to help Theale Flower Show?
We're always keen for new members to come along and help throughout the year, especially for Show Day. It's always a really enjoyable social experience and you'll also get to meet more people in the village.
It's also important that we carry on the tradition of Theale Flower Show. The Show has always been and remains an important event in the village but it only gets staged with a lot of enjoyable effort from villagers and other friends.
Just to give you a taste of how enjoyable working for the Show it can be, Sheila Badman has families from all over the country who come and stay at her campsite year after year just so they can help run the Show and enjoy the day - they always say "there's nothing like it where we live".
There isn't, so why not be part of it? Contact us or call our Chair Michaela Andrew, or vice-chairs Nick Avery, Carolyn Drew, or Matt Drew
