People in Cheddar will be looking to dazzle judges with their fantastic flower arrangements, delicious cakes and oversized vegetables.

This weekend the flower show returns to the Somerset village and participants will be vying for the first place ribbon.

Entries for the best sunflower, best bouquet, best victoria sponge or largest cabbage have been submitted to the annual show and are ready for the judges to make their decisions.

The doors will open on the event on Saturday, where onlookers will be able to try the cakes, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and admire the candidates’ fruit and vegetables.

The show now celebrates its 32nd year and organisers are hoping this event will be as good, if not better than in previous years.

Cheddar Flower Show will be held in the village hall, in Church Street, from 2pm.

Entry costs £1 for adults but is free for children.
