Flower Show

The Binfield Heath Annual Flower Show and Companion Dog Show takes place each August Bank Holiday Saturday.

Created nearly 70 years ago, this is the biggest event that takes place annually in the village. The  show attracts a large number of visitors and is a great day out for all the family. It is a forum for local people to show what they can do in the many flower, vegetable, arts and crafts competitions.

The show provides a day out for everyone, with a dog show and lots of food and entertainment for the family. Teas, a barbecue, a beer tent, and refreshments are available throughout the afternoon. Favourite attractions include birds of prey, classic cars and lots more in addition to the music provided by local bands and a large range of side shows and competitions. Ample parking is free and close to the show ground situated opposite Holmwood, Shiplake Row.

Leading up to the show are various events which help fund-raise for this local community event, including a Big Band Jazz evening which takes place on the Wednesday before the show. 

Helpers are always needed to put on this big event - if you would like to get involved either by joining the committee or just during the busy show week please contact chairman, Peter Ransom on 01189 478411 or peter.ransom@henleycomms.co.uk


You can still have your say on Gladman

We do not now expect the Gladman application to discussed at committee until mid-June at the earliest. It is still opposed by seven local parishes in South Oxon and by residents' associations in Emmer Green - and by Reading Borough Council. You can still have your say on the SODC Planning website.
