There was lots of homemade produce with jams, lemon curd, chutney and piccalilli, an adults photography section, handwork and art and a special children’ class where the little ones proudly exhibiting their models of insects, decorated buns, handmade greeting cards and painted pebbles.
Judges viewed and tasted all the entries before making their decision of who should be awarded first, second and third places.
And if the day wasn’t busy enough, refreshments were available for visitors and a plant sale was held.
The show’s committee said: “We would like to thank all judges, sponsors, donors of prizes and awards, exhibitors and visitors to our show and to everyone who has helped make this, our 50th annual show, possible.
