A spokesman said: “The hall looked magnificent by the time the doors were open at 1.45pm.

“There were many entries in all sections and it is particularly pleasing to see so many of such a good standard.

“There are so many talented people with many skills and knowledge in Scholes and surrounding area.

“We would not have a show without them so really appreciate all the hard work and effort that is put into creating the displays for people to view in the afternoon.”

“There were some really good entries and it is gratifying to see the young people taking part.

“Flowers, fruit and vegetables were very impressive and classes in the home baking section filled the tables with a wonderful array of lovely things to eat.

“The arts and crafts were well supported with more than 100 photos on display. The art classes were also well supported and of a high standard.”

Other attractions included teas provided by the WI, craft and plant stalls.

The stalls were well supported which is good as these funds are used to put on next year’s show, There was a raffle, tombola, and a plant produce and craft stall. This was the first time we had included crafts and some good items were donated and sold well.

Once again thank you to everyone who help and supported in whatever way they were able.
