Virtual Summer Show 2020

Summer Show Online

After 70 plus years of CHAPS changing to adapt to the way we live, we have now met another big milestone: doing our first Summer Show online. 

In these challenging times where we can’t do things face to face for a while we have still managed to come together as a gardening community in Churt and share our growing successes….and a few failures! It’s been wonderful to see how our gardens and vegetable plots have benefitted from this time – even if it’s been more challenging for us humans.

We had some fabulous winners across the categories and we were sent some wonderful pictures as entries. Here is a taster and visit the show pages to see them all.

Churt Horticultural and Produce Society (CHAPS) sounds a bit stuffy, but really we are just a bunch of keen gardeners who meet regularly – when we can. If you like the outdoors, have found a new passion for growing vegetables or flowers this year and would like to share a few tips then you’d be very welcome to join us for just £5 subscription per year.

For that you get discounts at local garden centres, access to our CHAPS yearly booklet and – when we can – invited to our talks and shows.

While waiting for life to get back to normal we are already planning our virtual Autumn Show with some socially distanced outside activity on the day. Watch out for updates on our news page and in the Parish magazine for more information on these.

When life does get back to normal we hope to resume our information evenings and talks.

Until then please enjoy the gorgeous images from our summer show. Thank you to all those who entered and to all those who continue to support this lovely society.
