HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY SUMMER SHOW: The Summer Show of the RBL Horticultural & Home Produce Society will be held tomorrow, Saturday, in the Village Halls and the doors will be open to the public at 2pm. There are numerous classes comprising flowers, fruit, vegetables, flower arranging, cookery and preserves and the ever popular painting and photographic classes. The show closes at 4.30pm and all exhibits left behind are auctioned for show funds.

FLUTES & FRIENDS: Anne Hodgson and a number of her flute students, both children and adults, will be giving another Flutes and Friends concert in St Mary’s tomorrow, Saturday, at 5pm. We will be playing a variety of solos and ensembles for flutes and piano, and hope that the audience will join us for tea and cakes afterwards. Entrance is free and all are very welcome, with a retiring collection in aid of St Peter and St James Hospice - we hope that those supporting the auction of promises in aid of the same cause earlier in the afternoon will be able to drop in and enjoy the music with us.
