Most disappointingly, after numerous Committee Meetings, the decision has been taken not to run the Capel Show again until August 2022. Despite the government’s plan to lift all restrictions from 21 June, the uncertainty of both future government policy and the very nature of the path COVID takes really left little alternative. Of paramount importance is the safety and well being of all those involved with the show as well as our villagers and visitors from further afield. Whilst we are desperate to bring some normality back to the life of our community, we feel it prudent to wait a while longer.
Do keep growing your splendid fruit, flowers and vegetables. Even if they cannot be exhibited at the show they will certainly be enjoyed at the table or in the garden. Take a few minutes to read Sally Griffin’s gardening column in the Capel Magazine and keep an eye on this website, especially for Chris’s Tips – a monthly guide to what to do in the garden. We may also be able to arrange some talks later in the year and details will, in due course, be found here.
