Bad weather did not keep the crowds away from the fourth Clifford village show last Saturday.

The event, which gives residents and non residents a chance to show off their skills in growing, making and creating, saw 59 adult entrants win prizes.

Show spokesman Jane Davies said: “The section for children also allows younger people to get involved and show off their skills and many families support a range of categories so it is truly a family event.”

And she added that apart from looking at the exhibits, the cake and plant stalls proved popular.

The announcement of winners was made half way through the afternoon and the prizes awarded by Parish Council chairman Nick Fawcett.

“The judges were again impressed by the high quality of the exhibits,” added Jane.

“The longest weed proved an interesting talking point and Jim Blackburn’s excellent exhibition onions were a triumph of careful growing.

“It was good to see both men and women doing well in the fruit and vegetable and the produce sections.”

Newly introduced last year was a class for homemade wine, and along with the sloe gin, provided a pleasurable tasting experience for the judge.

All sections were well supported and 202 certificates were handed out in the adult section and 59 entrants won prizes.

The overall cup given for achieving most points was presented to Jim and Marie Carroll with Jim Blackburn coming a close second and he received a medal for his efforts.

Other cups were presented to Jim Blackburn who won the fruit and vegetable section, Lyn Godwin for the produce section, Jim and Marie Carroll in the flower and floral art section, Glennis Allan for her photographs and John Harrad for his art work.

The Childrens sections were won by Cian Sykes for his castle made out of recycled materials and Seth Ritchie for his chocolate biscuits.

Ella Ritchie won with her decorated cupcakes with a jungle theme and Bryn Sykes and Daisy Aspinall won with their collages.

All these winners received a medal for their efforts as well as certificates.

Diggles First Fruits, a local charity supporting children also sponsors a section in the show and the winners of this for their artwork was Seth Ritchie and Edward Thornton.

Molly Burdall, Cian Sykes, Sammy Dawson Fellows, Ella Ritchie and Lucy Harper also received prizes in this section.

“They should all be congratulated for their hard work and creativity,” added Jane.
