Westwood Flower and Vegetable Show 2020 Update


Sadly, the Flowershow Committee have agreed that this years show will not take place.  The continuing uncertainty regarding the return to normal has made planning the show very difficult.  We have recently heard that The City of Bath Band, along with all Bands have been advised not to play together this summer.  Operating a social distancing system in the tea room for those attending over such a limited time slot would prove challenging.

This decision is very disappointing for the show committee members as we know that this is an event that is enjoyed by many.

All being well the show will be back next year so do keep working on your craft projects and photography.  Try capturing images of life during the lookdown for a photography category.

We look forward to seeing everyone next year and welcome any ideas to enhance the show.

Westwood Annual Flower and Vegetable Show 2020

 The Westwood Show Schedule is normally printed in April for distribution in May. It is quite possible that large gatherings will still be advised against in August. The Committee has agreed to suspend all progress on show organisation for the time being. If things in the UK improve radically, we can quickly gear up to produce the schedule and distribute - and re-invigorate show preparation. With the village in lockdown for some time, there are things in the show schedule which may inspire people such as gardening and crafting. The Show Committee’s mission is to inspire people to get involved every year - and it is perhaps far more important now whilst we all try to fill our time in our very restricted bubble. We live in hope of a sunnier outcome and will be prepared for it if it materialises - but if, as seems more likely than not at the moment, we have to cancel the Show, we can assure everyone that we will keep the same categories for next year so that their efforts can be displayed for all to see. We might even introduce an additional class for the best item made whilst in lockdown or isolation. And for the gardeners out there, you know that none of this year’s produce will go to waste.
