COMMUNITY MATTERS. We are being supported again by Waitrose, South Harrow. Get your green tokens and vote for us please

Last year, 2016, Waitrose and their kind South Harrow customers raised around £300 for Harrow in LEAF via their green token campaign.

So for the remainder of April we beg you to visit Waitrose and at the till ask for the green tokens in order that you can increase our share of the Community Matters charity donation on offer

The most popular charity gets the higher share of the charity pool.
If you prefer to use the self-service checkouts then do look for the jar of green tokens behind one of the robots and help yourself.

Exhibitors sought for the 13th Harrow in LEAF Horticultural and Crafts Show

Harrow in LEAF together with the Harrow Beekeepers are delighted to present their Annual Show again. When? and where? you ask:

August Bank Holiday Monday 28th August.
12 noon until 5.00pm
In the Great Barn at the Headstone Village Show, Headstone Musuem, Headstone Manor, Pinner View, HA2 6PX

All details about our Annual Show and about the exhibit Classes can be found on our Official Annual Show website...

At this time of year, we publish our Show Schedule (ie a list of Classes for exhibits) and invite the public to consider whether they are interested in joining our regular exhibitors and having a go! It is fun!
This year we have 173 individual classes plus some extra group or special Classes covering a wide variety of skills and talents.

These Classes cover not only Horticulture but include Arts, Crafts and Photography and Classes for Juniors and of course for Beekeepers. Every year we also have a People's Choice voted for by the public and this year we celebrate 40 years since the first release of the Star War movies.
