Binsted Flower & Produce Show

The Flower and Produce exhibitions have been the centre piece of the Fete on Binsted Rec. Having been forced into changes over the last two years we are trying a new approach, we will not be erecting the large Marquee, we will be putting on the show in a series of smaller tents. You will still find a plethora of Flowers, Fruit, Vegetables, mouth watering cakes and bakes, plus crafted items from people of all ages.

There is something for you to enter whether you are 4 to 104, whether you are green fingered, or a home baker. Once entered, you can then be judged, and if you pass the Judges review, you might take home a Trophy to proudly display till the following year.

What will you enter?
