Orwell, Cambridge UK (PRWeb UK) April 1, 2009
Orwellington.com is a new website that provides news and information to members of a thriving horticultural society in South Cambridgeshire. The site also has entry details for the Orwell and District Horticultural Society's annual competition, which is part of the Orwell Show held on the 22nd August.
Peter Kruger, editor of the Orwellington says, "Gardening has captured the public's interest at a time when the cost of fresh fruit and vegetables is rising and there is an increasing demand for locally grown produce. Local horticultural societies find they are becoming the first port of call for young people who are setting out their first garden, or who have recently acquired an allotment. Orwell, like many other villages in South Cambridgeshire, has a large number of well established gardens - and a lot of keen gardeners."
As well as giving society members a chance to show off their gardening skills, the annual competition has cooking, handicrafts and young people's sections and a rapidly growing photographic section. The popularity of the competition means that entries come from people all across the region.
The Orwell and District Horticultural Society attracts members from the surrounding villages in South Cambridgeshire and will use the new website to stay in contact with these members and support sponsors of the Orwell Show. The site will also contain gardening tips and advice on local growing conditions.
Details of how to join the Orwell and District Horticultural Society - and how to enter the annual competition can be found at http://www.orwellington.com
