PREPARATIONS for Minehead’s annual flower and produce show are well underway, and once again organisers are inviting all the district’s gardeners, cooks, winemakers, artists, photographers, handcrafters, floral artists and beekeepers to enter.

Allotment holders can compete for their own trophy as can children.

A spokesman told the County Gazette: “We look forward to seeing all our seasoned show people and warmly welcome new exhibitors to make 2014 another successful show.

“If you have not exhibited before you will find it great fun and hopefully will become a regular participant.”

Schedules and entry forms are now available from the West Somerset Garden Centre, Minehead Library, Butterflies Restaurant, The Information Centre, Daisy Chain, Alcombe Newsagent/Post Office and the Porlock Tourist Centre.

They can also be obtained by phoning Derek Blay on 01643- 709033 or Barbara Brady on 01643-705108.

The show will be held at West Somerset Community College in Alcombe on Saturday, August 9.
