Our old venue, the Paraparaumu Community Centre in Ngahina Street, is no longer in use, so this year we are having our annual flower show in the newly-refurbished Memorial Hall on the corner of Aorangi Road and Tutanekai Street.
The new venue gives us twice as much room as previously, so we can use the big staging for the show exhibits and still have plenty of space for potted plants and hanging baskets, and the floral art group will have all the space they need for an extra special display.
The category list has been slightly tweaked from last year, so there are now both large and small classes for cut bulbs and succulents, and one class for fruit and one for vegetables. You can read the whole list or download it as a PDF here.
