This may be the last year that this message appears since 2023 may be the last year for Swanland Show. Unless a new leader comes forward in time, the October AGM will determine its future!
Swanland Show 2023
What is needed is people willing to step up to the plate in order to try and save Swanland Show before it becomes just a memory. I will be standing down from the Committee at the next AGM in October 2023. I have acted as Chair for the last 10 years (as well as acting Secretary for the last few years). It is now time for me to pass on the baton and a new leader is required to take Swanland Show forward.
Our next meeting is planned for February 2023 when we will consider the classes to include within the schedule for the 2023 Show in September. If anyone wishes to take on the future leadership and also the secretarial roles then I would suggest that they attend the next Committee meeting by way of an induction. If interested, I can be contacted by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and would be delighted to provide any further details required.
Swanland Show 2023
At tonight’s AGM it was decided that 2023 is likely to be the final Swanland Show since a number of Committee members (including myself) wish to stand down. We need new Committee members, younger blood and fresh ideas if Swanland Show is to survive beyond 2023. As it stands, the next and possibly last Swanland Show is planned for Saturday 9th September 2023 at St Barnabas Church Hall.
This will be held on Thursday 13th October 2022. Will there be a Show in 2023 or not?
Schedules have been printed and have started to appear in local shops and venues. Look for the stand-out blue covers this year!
We are pleased to announce that we have been allowed to carry over our lottery funding grant from 2020 to support Swanland Show 2022.
The metaldehyde slug pellets ban comes into force in the UK as from March 31st. It is therefore illegal for gardeners to use pellets containing this organic compound.
Professional and home gardeners must now turn to more environmentally friendly and humane methods for how to get rid of slugs in the garden.
The Committee met on Thursday 31st March and, all being well, voted to hold Swanland Show on Saturday 10th September 2022 at St Barnabas Church Hall.
