Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Reverend Alan Taylor, opened the 47th Aberford Show last Saturday to great applause.

Before the show Rev Taylor, with guests of The Aberford Horticultural Society, enjoyed a lunch hosted by The Swan.

The whole community enjoyed taking part in the show - playing the raffle and tombola, visiting the plant stall, tucking into the scrumptious tea and cakes, and guessing the weight of a large pumpkin.

Rev Taylor congratulated the village on its community spirit and presented the prizes. Children’s entries were well up on last year.

At the end of the day, there were bargains galore for everyone as the flowers, vegetables and produce were auctioned to the highest bidder.
