Cheddar Flower Show was well attended as ever as keen gardeners showed off their exemplary touch again this year.

The village hall hosted the event, in which competitors went head to head to win this year’s prizes.

Traditional flowers plus fruit and vegetables were among the most popular classes.

However, there was also categories in cooking and preserves, arts and crafts and photography.

Plus, to attract entries from people of all ages, a children’s section was also organised.

To make sure people did not go hungry on Saturday afternoon, Cheddar Country Market ran a stall selling cakes and hot drinks.
