The Leek Club is not just a Leek Club! It provides the focus for a village show for vegetables and flowers that is an excellent way to bring the gardening season to a close at the beginning of October. This year’s show is on Saturday 5th October. Take a look at the schedule on this website and see what you can enter. Entry is free and is open to all. Only the Leek class is restricted to Leek Club members with its big money prizes!
The village school take an active part in the Leek show, with the children providing a healthy number of entries to their own class and leeks and onions in the open classes. The Leek Club would very much like to encourage all the gardeners of Slaley to enter something into the show to maintain the fine tradition of the village.
The committee now consists of Malcolm Goodwin (Chairman), David Innes (Secretary) and Brian Wilson (Treasurer). The Slaley Leek Club is thriving, looking forward to the coming years with great enthusiasm and welcomes new members. If you’ve just moved to Slaley its a great way to meet a few of your neighbours.
