Have your say

A new, 12-week competition inviting people to take part in weekly fun activities is up and running – but there is still plenty of time to sign up.

SHout and About is run by South Holland District Council and includes arts, crafts, walking, exercise classes, cooking, gardening, dancing and much more.

Next week’s activities will see competitors enjoying a series of free gardening sessions

By completing the activities, participants will be awarded points which go towards winning a series of prizes.

SHout and About started on Monday with participants taking part in a photography contest.

Next week’s activities will see competitors enjoying a series of free gardening sessions.

You can come along even if you have not signed up to the competition yet and learn about all types of gardening including growing your own fruit and vegetables.

On Wednesday, September 2 there are two workshops being delivered by one of the competition sponsors, Silverwood Garden Centre in Long Sutton.

From 10am to noon and between 2pm and 4pm the head gardener at Silverwood will run a potting workshop in which participants can make a hanging basket of pansies and herbs.

There are also workshops being delivered by master gardeners in Spalding, Crowland, Donington and Holbeach.

Participants can meet and talk with the master gardener and take home free pots to plant in their gardens.

The workshops are being held on Thursday, September 3 from 3.30pm-5pm at Holbeach Youth Club and at Crowland Youth Club from 6pm-7.30pm.

On Friday, September 4 workshops are being held from 3.30pm-5pm in Ayscoughfee Hall Gardens and from 6pm-7.30pm at the Ruby Hunt Centre in Donington.
