Flowers, vegetables, cooking and crafts were on show in the event’s 71st year.

And while the number of entrants was slightly down this year, there was plenty to see and enjoy.

The village primary school’s pupils took the chance to promote next month’s scarecrow festival by displaying old and new scarecrows.

Show secretary Sue Andrews was happy to see a large number of youngsters taking part.

She said: “We were particularly pleased this year at the number of children who entered and clearly did so with such enthusiasm.

“Their delight at seeing their items on display and receiving their prize money makes all the hard work in staging the show so worthwhile.”
