News from the Bramley Show

Harvesting the last of the veg and tidying the garden are priorities this month and the great leaf clear up is approaching, but the autumn colours are beautiful. For those who craft, now is the time to start making those personal Christmas gifts. My knitting needles are at the ready!

We are pleased to announce that grants have been awarded to the Bramley Coffee morning for its weekly community event, to Muddy Fingers for its work with encouraging gardening for children and to Bramley WI, who have supported the show with the café and providing cakes for several years.

This year we would to add a bit of magic to Bramley this Christmas and invite you to

Light up Bramley with our Christmas Tree Festival

To enter, all you need to do is put up a decorated and lit Christmas tree in your front garden or porch. Don’t forget you can use solar powered fairy lights or even battery lights.

If you would like to take part, then all you need to do is email thebramleyshow@gmail.com for an entry form. Forms will also be available on the Bramley Show web site www.bramleyshow.org.uk

All trees will be photographed, and the winning photo will be used to create a Bramley Christmas card which will first be on sale at the Bramley Show 2020.

Only trees will be judged and no other house decoration will be taken into consideration. Judging will take place the week before Christmas.

There will also a Christmas decoration competition – one for adults and one for children. Details will be in next month’s edition, on Facebook and the website.

Our new website is being added to regularly and you will find recipes, craft ideas and gardening hints and tips from Muddy Fingers.
