Annual Gooseberry Show

Home » Newsroom » Annual Gooseberry Show

In 2019 Over Peover Gooseberry Club, after many years of showing on the 1st Sunday in August, have made a decision to hold their annual show on the last Sunday in July.

This results from the club being aware of the effects of climate change and they are also aware of clashes with various other events on the 1st Sunday in August

Our shows venue is still the Dog Inn in Over Peover (Wellbank Lane) but it will now be held on

After the weighing in, we will have a very short break before we present the trophies. This will be followed by the raffle and draw tickets (tickets are now available for the draw tickets from all members).

Both raffles have fantastic prizes but you have to be in it to win it and any profit is donated to our charity.

Finally our annual auction will take place with our auctioneer Mr Peter Clarkson -- plenty of lots including homemade cakes etc.

As a Club we recognise that it is important to give generously to charities and this year our nominated charity is HOSPICE AT HOME who will be getting an outstanding donation of £500.00 this year to help them with the good work that they do for the local community.
