Individual sections acknowledge their grateful support for sponsors for specific classes, but there are some people and larger organisations who make valuable contributions to the show as a whole, without whom there would be no show:

The High Pennine Horticultural Society

Did you know that Lynn Dent sells second hand books on behalf of the Society in her shop, Woollyback, on the Main Street in Stanhope? Half of the proceeds go to the Society (the other half to Macmillan Cancer Support), and are a valuable contribution to our fundraising effort.
Our thanks to Lynn. Please support her with a visit or by letting her have any books, particularly paperbacks, you no longer need.
Contact: 65a Front Street, Stanhope, DL13 2TY tel: 01388 527700

Many thanks to our sponsors!

If you wish to sponsor the show, please contact Mr Greg Dalton (Email:; Mobile: 075 46328241).
