Yatton Horticultural Society brightened up the village hall by running its show on Saturday.

Classes included floral exhibitions and produce and saw a large number of entries put forward.

Joan Pittock, the society’s chairman, said: “The rain held off on Saturday so the entertainment on Glebelands Park by the Clevedon Ukulele Strummers was enjoyed along with a variety of local stalls, plants, honey, paintings etc.

“In the village hall entries were up on last year in most classes and the vegetable judge commented on the high standard of exhibits.
