Glenside Show News (from Glenside News June 2015 : 30/08/15 : MG)

Inside June’s edition of the Glenside you should have received a copy of the schedule for the Glenside Show on July 18th (2015).  Please do not lose it, have a look now and make some plans for entering at least one of the classes or getting your children to enter.  Without people entering we do not have a show. You do not have to be an expert just willing to have a go and join in the fun.

Entries should be in by Thursday 16th.  Please do not leave it later than that as we cannot get out the correct number of tables with enough space to correctly display everything unless we know in advance how many entries to expect.

So please put your copy of the schedule somewhere safe, the date for entry in your diary and start your preparations now. I look forward to being inundated with entries.

Glenside Show News (from Glenside News May 2015 : 07/06/15 : MG)

We are well on our way to being organised for this event which will take place on Saturday 18th July.  Please put the date in your diary now

Show schedules will be delivered to each of you inside the Glenside, so you will have no excuse for not entering at least one of the classes.

A new class for all of the children is ‘A creature made from vegetables’, so get those veg seeds sown soon! For the flower arrangers the theme for our special floral arrangement will be ‘To celebrate the 800th Anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta’. So you had better start growing those 800 year old flowers.

We have had confirmation that Madam Zara will be making an appearance to read your palms, and predict love romance and good fortune. Plans for plenty of cake are also on task.
