This year’s event will be held on Friday 17th August.
Harvest Homes started when farmers put on a meal with cider to thank the workers for bringing in the harvest. Wedmore’s event has now evolved into a full day of events, starting with a Church Service, followed by the Harvest Home procession, lead by the Harvest Home King, Queen and Princess, with local organisations and families having colourful trailers drawn through the village by tractors.
There is a lunch for ladies and gentleman over the age of 16, in the marquee on the playing fields ground, followed by children’s sports events and then a tea. The evening sees an evening of entertainment, often with a tribute band playing to a packed marquee. Wedmore’s HH traditionally takes place on the third Friday in August.
Why not get into the spirit of the Harvest Home and submit a hanging floral arrangement to decorate the marquee – or enter yourself, your children or your vintage car /bike or horse in the procession?
It would be great to have lots more entries for the flower arranging as it really brings the marquee to life – and we know there are lots of great garden enthusiasts in the village due to our many Wedmore in Bloom success stories!
We fundraise throughout the year with our successful business directory, 100 Hundred Club and different events!
