Around 180 entries took part in the Bleadon Horticultural Society event after managing to protect their crops from the recent storms.

Tim Erridge left with the silverware in the fiercely contested cut-flowers category.

Showgoers had more than just floral displays to enjoy, with a selection of homecrafts being judged, and cakes to indulge in.

Elsewhere, Sue Davey and Chris Parkinson shared the honours for their photographic entries. The well-represented Easter exhibit category was won by Jan Marshman.
