News Update re Sandy Show 2022!

Hello Folks, the 'Final' updated copy of the 2022 Sandy Show Catalogue is now available to download. Click on the link below to download it.
IMPORTANT update! The trophies and awards for the winning entries in various Show classes will be presented by our honoured guest, MR MAX McMURDO - the well known upcycling guru, who has been with us at a previous show in 2015. We are delighted that he has agreed to visit us again this year. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with his work, Max has featured BBC’s Dragons' Den, CH4’s Amazing Spaces, Fill your house for free, Find it, Fix it, Flog it, Mortgage Free on Netflix, Nat Geo's Machine Impossible and ITV’s 10k Holiday Home amongst other project.
Finally, there will be some hard copies available in due course, mainly at this year's Sandy Carnival and Jubilee events. Due to costs of printing however, the supply will be limited and handed out to those without means of downloading and printing their own. We would ask everyone to be considerate to others in this respect. Don't forget, you can also download just your Show Entry Forms when you have read the Show Catalogue list of classes and the rules applying to entering your exhibits.
We look forward to seeing you all around the town at the Carnival and Jubilee events!

Sandy Show 2022 - Update

Sandy Show 2022

The date and venue for the Sandy Show 2022 is confirmed as Saturday 3rd September 2022, in the Great Hall of Sandy Conservative Club, Bedford Road, SG19 1EL.

As the venue has restricted space availability, the Show will be  'slimmer' than previously but will still focus on the core values of the annual Sandy Show, the origins of which date back to 1868! There will of course be the traditional classes, including Vegetables, Fruit, Flowers & Floral Art. Also, the culinary arts - Baking, Cake Decoration, Brewing Beers & Wines, Preserves and so on. For the nimble fingered and artistic & construction skills, there will be Handicraft classes to enter. Finally, there will be classes for juniors to enter, making the Show a family event for all to visit and enjoy! There are still around 140 Show Classes to choose from, so everyone one from novice to keen amateur will be catered for.

The 2022 Sandy Show Catalogue has now been published with full details of the classes, entry forms and all the rules & regulations applicable to the exhibits in each class. You can download your copy here.

Notes for printing out your copy:

You can print out on your printer at home - just follow the instructions in your printer settings. Most modern printers allow you to print double sided and also in 'booklet' format. If you only want to print out entry forms, select to print pages 18-21. NB: The Catalogue front cover is not numbered - Page 1 is inside, so your printer will count the cover as Page 1!)

To make it easier for you, the entry forms alone can be downloaded here

Good Luck and see you at this year's Sandy Show!


AGM 12th October 2021

AGM 12th October 2021

Hello All! Please see below, a message from our Chairman regarding the AGM 12th October 2021:

'Hi there,

I hope that this finds you fit and well.

Having not met in person for some 18 months, the committee now believes that the time is right to hold an Annual General Meeting of the Association. This will be on Tuesday 12th October at 7.30p.m in the Bowls Club Pavilion of Sandy Conservative Club - this is the usual time of year for us to hold this type of meeting. There will be time for a social gathering after the formal proceedings, but we would ask that everyone observes social distancing rules to prevent the spread of any Covid infection.

The Association is at a difficult cross-roads in its existence, so please come along with plenty of ideas for the future, and any offers of assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please bring along your friends and colleagues who might be interested in taking on some responsibilities.

At present there is no venue on offer within Sandy that could host a Show in 2022, in the size and style that we have become accustomed to.

I look forward to seeing you all once more in mid-October.

Kind regards

Andrew

Chair of Sandy & District Horticultural Association'
