Green-fingered gardeners are invited to a special event in Newport Pagnell next month.

The Newport Pagnell Horticultural Show opens its doors on September 7 with gardeners growing and showing since 1809. Now they are inviting people to celebrate.

It’s not too late to enter the flowers, pot plants, fruit or vegetables categories or, if you’re more of an indoor person, take organisers your preserves, cakes or handicraft to display. If you have an eye for art, why not enter the photography competitions.

Encourage your children to value their environment. The children’s section includes miniature seed tray gardens, photographs of pets, and animals made from vegetables.

Items are sold off at the end of the show, so be prepared for some real bargains.

Entry forms can be obtained from the Offices of the Newport Pagnell Town Council at 80 High Street, Newport Pagnell or by email at
