The Hook Flower & Produce Show will take place on Sunday 8th September (from 2pm to 5pm) in Hook Community Centre.
NEW FOR 2019 – the Hortus Loci Plant Centre Best In Show Trophy.
It will build on previous Flower and Produce Shows first held by Hook Allotments Association in 2014. 2019’s event will consist of the Flower and Produce Show in the main hall of Hook Community Centre, supported by a traditional tea room (sponsored by Tesco) and fundraising in support of Hook In Bloom. Hook In Bloom, Hook Allotments Association and Hook Village Halls are working together to stage the show. The eagerly awaited results of the Hook In Bloom competition will also be announced with District Councillor Jonathan Glen presenting the prizes. It is thanks to our sponsors and village fundraising that we can continue to hold the show.

HOOK FLOWER & PRODUCE SHOW
Sunday 8 September 2019
We are currently putting the final touches to the planning behind this year’s Show. As before, you may want some forewarning of some categories so that you can start practicing. Most of the vegetable, flower and produce categories are fairly standard and we hope that everyone will enjoy growing and making their best entries. A full list will be soon be available on the HAA and In Bloom websites and it is planned to deliver a list and entry form to every house later in the year.
Some of the changes for this year include:
We are keeping the Celebration gateau but this year other categories include Loaf of Bread, Tea loaf or fruit loaf, Cup Cup cakes x 3 (with both an adults’ and children’s category) and 3-egg round Victoria sandwich.
By the Seaside (new); Flowers and/or fungi; People (single or group); Wildlife; and Transport (New). Children will have a separate category especially for them – see below.
Pre-School – (Group or individual)
We are seeking a Collage entry from as many individual children as possible but also ask that each of the pre-school groups exhibit a group entry.
Flower Pot person (new); Painting or drawing; Cookies/biscuits x 4
Under 15 years
Categories this year (see list for full details) include Vegemal ; Lego model; Family picnic (one portion); and Cup Cakes – decorated x 3 (new). We are also including a separate children’s photo category (Domestic Animal Photograph) (new) and a special children’s General Craft (new) category.
List as last year. However, to make judging easier, we are splitting ‘Cross stitch & Tapestry on Canvas’; Patchwork; and Embroidery.
We also have a new category for all ages, “A lego model” (it must fit into a 30cm cube).
