Froggatt and District Horticultural Society Show Announcement February 24th, 2021
On behalf of the Froggatt & District Horticultural Society I am delighted to announce that we plan to hold the 75th Froggatt Show on Saturday 28th August 2021.
The decision not to hold last year’s show was one that we did not take lightly. It was however the only sensible course of action in a year that impacted on everyone. It will only be possible to hold this year’s show with careful planning. However, we have decided to make this statement of intent in light of the progress of the vaccine roll-out and the increasing scientific understanding of the virus and measures needed to mitigate its transmission.
It may be necessary to change certain aspects of the show to allow for requirements such as social distancing and this is one of the extra tasks that our organising committee has undertaken to address. The show will of course take place subject to the appropriate legal and safety condition in place on the show date.
We have already decided to hold an extra meeting of the committee in approximately 2 months to assess the situation and ensure our preparations are appropriate for whatever form the show takes. While some aspects of the show may be altered to accommodate the strange times in which we now live I am sure our ingenuity and enthusiasm will mean that does not detract from this highlight of the Peak District calendar.
I invite anyone who is not already involved with the show and believes they can contribute in any way to its success in 2021 to contact me on the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be working hard to plan for all eventualities and deliver the show that you all know and enjoy in a safe manner.
Chairman, Froggatt and District Horticultural Society
