Residents who share a love of gardening and growing their own vegetables will be gathering at the Collier Row Horticultural Trading Store in Chase Cross Road on Saturday, September 15 from 2pm - 4.15pm.

The Collier Row Horticultural Society and Allotment Association also holds an annual summer show, however the autumn show provides gardeners with the opportunity to present more seasonal vegetables for this time of the year, such as courgettes, tomatoes and potatoes.

Irene Skillett, show secretary said: “It’s a special occasion, a real community event.

“The event is being held in our new horticultural shop, where we held the summer event which was really successful.”

Visitors are invited to enter their home grown vegetables and flowers or come along to see the produce and enjoy some tea and cake.
