In Memory of Vincent Board
Like so many local organisations we have a committee of dedicated volunteers. With the Flower Show it is more like an extended family.
Sadly, this year, we lost one of our number, Vincent Board, to cancer.
Born and brought up in Wandsworth, Vincent and his wife Jane moved to Claygate in 1986 where he quickly became a supporter at the Primary School.
A gregarious character, Vincent was active in a number of local organisations, including our own where he was particularly good at raising sponsorship funds. He was President of Wingham Court Bowls Club, a member of the Ramblers Association, often on local walks, and took part in a number of cycle events around Europe and North Africa raising funds for charity. He was very proud of his village and some of you will no doubt have seen him out litter picking and making our village a nicer place.
Vincent received excellent care from The Royal Marsden. A portion of the funds raised at this year’s Show will be donated to Cancer Research in his memory.
He will be sadly missed, our thoughts are with Jane as we pay tribute to the wonderful Vince this year

This year we are using the Just Giving platform to raise funds for Claygate community causes & Cancer Research UK. The latter in memory of one of our committee members, Vincent Board.
This year 2021, we are not selling tickets and have no sponsors. We are promoting Claygate Local businesses by supporting a village event which brings residents out into the village accessing local services, shops & eateries.
When you are out and about enjoying the weekend or in the run up to the show, please donate using the just giving QR code on the posters or through the donate buttons on the website.
Claygate Flower & Village Show is an annual event run by volunteers. A community not for profit organisation, donating surplus funds to local causes.
