“Despite a challenging year for gardeners, the exhibits were of a high standard including many different varieties and colours in the flower section,” said a judge.

The number of entries in classes rose from 2017, which included flowers, floral arrangements, vegetables, fruit, handicrafts, preserves and cookery.

“The weather was fabulous and local people turned out in force to support this popular event in the village’s calendar,” said show spokesman Katherine Harrison.

“Another judge commented that this was a lovely village show with a welcoming, friendly atmosphere and an excellent standard of entries.”
