The Bleadon event attracted quite a crowd on Saturday, despite the arrival of storm Freda at the weekend, who battered the area with winds and rain.

Competitors managed to protect their cut flowers to put on a wonderful display of spring colours and scents.

More than 90 people came and enjoyed the displays and the selection of homemade cakes from the refreshment counter.

Libby Lockyer gained the most points overall for the homecraft section while Otty Pocklington took home the prize for best biscuits.
