GRAMPIANS WILDFLOWER SHOW NOT HAPPENING IN HALLS GAP THIS YEAR – COMMITTEE DECIDES TO MAKE RADICAL CHANGES
The wildflower show committee met early in March to discuss the future of the show. We had much fun in October celebrating our 75th show and decided that now is an appropriate time to rethink the show, and we will take a year off to do so. Several of our key workers want to retire, and we need to rethink how we do the show. We may have a few activities during that traditional first week of October, but no show in the hall. This way we can make a clear break with our traditional way of doing the show.
We would like to thank the FOGG members from further afield who have contributed so much in the recent years. Without your help the show would have folded before this.
We are exploring whether in the future we could share shows with a Dunkeld committee, who already hold a mosaic festival in Spring. Something like: one year it will be held here with a HG committee, the next in Dunkeld with their committee while we relax. (with of course a bit of co-ordination).
We would welcome any suggestions, and hope that we can still get FOGG support for the future shows. In the meantime we look forward to an enjoyable, relaxed first week in October.
