We are attending the Portishead Flower Show and Country Fair tomorrow (Sunday) so pop & see us! Don't forget there is Companion Dog Show with registration at 12.00 noon & start time of 1.00 pm. The weather is looking cooler & the organisers have made sure there is plenty of water available throughout the site. Also if you have any concerns about your pets overheating we have clinical staff available throughout the day on our stall.
The categories include:
The Portishead Horticultural Society (PHS) was founded in 1863 and held its’ first Flower Show in that year. Shows have been held every year since then, with the exception of the war years, at a variety of venues. In 1951 the PHS acquired the present Show Field and had the level raised to overcome its’ marshy ground and make it more suitable.
The Shows are major events in Portishead’s calendar and have continued to adapt to reflect changing times. The show title has varied to include Fete and Country Fair. Apart from flowers, vegetables and fruit the show has included handicrafts, country crafts, horses, dogs, funfair and even dare-devil motor displays amongst others. The accent today is very much on activities for our children and young people and for promoting local country life, nature and environment as well as being an outlet for our local talent. We seek to continue with the good traditions from our past, whilst introducing new things that we hope will come to be regarded as traditions in the future.
The Show Field is located on the corner of Clapton Lane and Clevedon Road opposite Gordano School. The post code is BS20 7RA.
We are fortunate at Vale Vets to have an amazing team of committed, talented and enthusiastic staff.
