However, the season was celebrated at the village show in Redhill on Sunday afternoon.

The village hall was full of colourful exhibits for Redhill’s harvest fair and flower show.

The main competitions involved floral displays and vegetables, with several fantastic show-stopping pieces scooping the main awards.

Some tasty cupcakes were on show, with children were encouraged to get involved in the show as well.
