Gilcrux Flower & Produce Show
Come along to Gilcrux and join in traditional village fun at the annual show.
And, better even than a Farmer’s Market, you will have the opportunity to bid for exhibits after judging has taken place. Home made cakes anyone? Preserves? Fresh produce from the gardens?
Admission: includes tea/coffee and biscuits and is £1.50 for adults and 50p for children.
The Bar will be open!
Venue: Gilcrux Village Hall. Gilcrux, CA7 2QD.
Contact: Helen Johnson, 016973 21895 or email@example.com
More info: www.gilcruxvillagehall.co.uk
Both pubs in the village will also be open from 12 pm and serve meals at lunchtime and evening.
