Ruishton Village Day Flower Show 20th July 2019

The Ruishton Flower Show is celebrating its 37th anniversary, this year we have 106 different classes over 7 sections, it gives us 700+ prises to be won. So, if you have green fingers or enjoy making cakes and jams, perhaps you are handy crafty, or even a bit of a closet wine maker, we would love to see you enter them at the show. We always have a great show for the younger ones in our community and they never disappoint us with their imagination and ability.
