Taddington Produce Show 2019


Taddington Gardeners are preparing for the annual Taddington Produce Show which will be held on Sunday 1st September at the Bramwell Institute in Taddington. Residents of Taddington, Monyash, Chelmorton and Flagg and their family and friends are all invited to enter any of the categories. There are sections for vegetables, flowers, homemade preserves, cakes and bread, photography, art and handicrafts. And this year there will be an expanded Junior Section – all children at the local schools or children with family in any of the villages are eligible to enter.

The Junior section is for youngsters up to 16 years old and is divided into different age groups. In the other sections, there is a large range of vegetables, produce and flowers to choose from – including eggs and … the wonkiest veg. Jellies, chutneys, pickles, jams, lemon curd and marmalade feature amongst the preserves and, if you want to try your hand at baking, you can have a go at classic tea loaf, a cake containing any vegetable, a Victoria sponge or fruit scones. This year, the much coveted award for the ‘Men’s Baking’ category will go to the baker of the best date and walnut loaf. The three categories for the photography section are ‘a domestic animal’, ‘on the farm’ and ‘on holiday’. The handicraft section features all the classics and also includes scope for a bit of ‘upcycling’.

A copy of the schedule with all the different classes can be downloaded from this website below, by emailing taddingtongardeners@gmail.com or by calling 07929 151688. Hard copies will also be distributed around Taddington.

Village midsummer disco

It’s been some time since we had a disco for grown-ups, so we’re celebrating the summer solstice in Taddington with our very own event, on the evening of the summer BBQ and treasure hunt. There will be rock and pop classics to delight everyone who loves to dance, complete with meaty sound, lights, lasers and even smoke! Nibbles will be provided and as we cannot sell alcohol, you can bring your own drinks.

So that is Saturday 29th June from 9pm till late.
Taddington Village Institute
Over 16s only
Tickets only £4, available from the committee, or on the door on the night.

Please support this Taddington event, bring all your mates and have a great time. We look forward to welcoming you.

Indoor Yard Sale

The institute will be open again this coming Bank Holiday weekend 4th-6th May for the indoor yard sale (white elephant style) – Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10 – 1. Hot drinks and cakes will be available throughout.

We are still looking to collect any unwanted and saleable items between now and then. If you are having a spring clean, please think of the sale, before getting rid of them. All our fund raising efforts are important to help bring in the funds needed to keep the Institute viable and to finance the planned improvements to the facilities. So do come along and tell your friends – it will be good fun and you never know, you may pick up a real bargain and … there will be cake.
