The Society holds two shows each year: The Spring Show and the Summer Show.

The Spring Show - typically around the end of March - is held in the Large Village Hall.  It features a wide array of daffodils and narcissi as well as tulips, polyanthus, wallflowers, flowering bulbs, arrangements, home craft and a variety of children's classes, including baking and photography as well as themed displays.

The Summer show is held in a marquee on the village green in early September and is a highlight of the village calendar, often coinciding with the annual Superstars contest.

Summer Show classes include a vast array of vegetables and fruit - including novelty classes such as "the heaviest marrow" or "most misshapen fruit" and several themes for flower arrangements.

The Summer Show also includes flowers - in particular dahlias - and homecrafts, usually involving jam or marmalade, cakes and other baking categories.

Categories are judged by qualified, external expert judges.

There are prizes for winning children's entries and cups for Society members' winning entries in certain categories
