Gardening enthusiasts beat the English climate and produced enough vegetables and flowers to put on a good display at the annual Collingham Village Show.
Chairman Alison Smith said there was plenty to see but entries for the children’s categories were down.
She explained the drop: “It was a bank holiday weekend and the schools were not back for a week, so a lot of people were still on holiday. I hope for a better turnout from the children next year.”
She added that it was a relief to have good weather for the event after the poor summer.
“In spite of our climate people found sufficient vegetables and flowers to put on a good show of both and there was plenty to see.
“The handicrafts and art work were major attractions.”
