Melksham Town Council and Melksham Gardeners’ Society are working together to create a Virtual exhibition of the rich array of produce being harvested across Melksham this summer. Gardeners across Melksham are invited to send in photographs of their flowers, fruit and vegetables grown in the Melksham area, and all entries will be displayed on the Town Council’s Facebook page throughout September.

Barbara Cropp, chairman of Melksham Gardeners’ Society said, ‘It is a great way to celebrate everyone’s hard work over the summer and we are really excited to see the results.’

The categories and entry details for the Virtual Show are listed below.
