Summer Produce Show
The first ever Summer Produce Show / Sale was a great success indeed. Thanks to all the children and adults who took part - we'll definitely do it again next year!
Hampton Court Flower Show 2016 'Scarecrow Competition
For a third exciting year SFIS gardeners made a brilliant scarecrow which got us through to the last round of the competition! The theme was 'Space' and our scarecrow depicted the first animals in space.
