TARRANT MONKTON & LAUNCESTON FLOWER & PRODUCE SHOW
SATURDAY, 5TH AUGUST
Just a reminder to you all that we are holding our Flower & Produce Show this Saturday, 5th August in the Village Hall. The Village Hall will be open to receive your exhibits on Friday, 4th August between 7pm and 8pm and again on Saturday 5th August between 9am and 10am. Doors will be closed at 10.00am on the Saturday when judging will commence.
The Hall will be open at 3pm for everyone to come and view. Look forward to seeing you all then.
Race Director, Andy Eastaugh, would like to thank his army of volunteers from Tarrants Monkton and Launceston, and beyond, who’s kind assistance helped make this year’s Tarrant Valley 10 running race, our 30th, a resounding success. There were record entries of 291 and 46 in the TV10 and children’s races respectively, a challenge for the whole race team on the day. We are pleased to announce that we raised £3300 for our good causes, to be divided equally between Epilepsy Action, Dorset Action on Abuse and the Tarrant Monkton and Launceston village hall.
