Allotment Show stall & A walk down Valley Drive

15th August 2021

HCS stall Allotment Show, Sun Pavilion, Valley Gardens

On Sunday 15th August the Society had a stall at the Annual HDAF show at the Sun Pavilion, Valley Gardens. Committee members and some society members took turns on the stall and we were delighted to speak to so many members of the public about the Society’s work and activities. Our new banner was in use for the first time and got a lot of attention, as did our stylish bookmarks. We have already seen new members join after meeting us on Sunday, and for existing members who dropped in to see us it was a reminder for them of the role the Society plays in Harrogate life. The Mayor and Mayoress also took a keen interest during their official visit to the show. During the afternoon, society member Dr Paul Jennings led a walking tour of nearby Valley Drive, which we hope to repeat in the near future.
