As well as being on our website, the Marquee Schedule 2021 is now available as a hard copy. It may be picked up from the Hut, Bookends in Emsworth High Street, and the libraries in Emsworth, Southbourne and Havant. There’s a huge range of classes for all age groups and the more who enter, the better the show will be so do have a go and don’t forget the novices classes if you’ve never entered before. If you need guidance about exhibiting fruit, vegetables and, the RHS Horticultural Show Handbook can be borrowed from the Hut in return for a deposit and your signature. Volunteers – we need you! Thank you to the people who have already volunteered. We need more of you – as follows. We are in desperate need of one or two people to organise the cups and other awards. The key tasks are setting up a display in the morning before the Show opens, completing a chart showing who has won each award, and assisting the person who is presenting the prizes during the prize giving.

Dressing tables on Saturday   28 th   August   10am   –   1pm . Four people to cover the tables, measure and mark the class spaces, and place all necessary items on the tables.
