Impressive handicrafts and floral displays were on display at Sandford’s summer show.
Sandford and District Gardening Club put on a fantastic array of flowers, fruit, vegetables, cookery and handicrafts.
Treasurer John Dunster said: “As a result of the weather, we were down a few entries, but the floral art and handicraft classes were very well represented.
“The show was a big success and we had quite a few visitors in the afternoon which made it a very sociable occasion.
“We’re very pleased with how well it went.”
Graham Mizen was presented with an award for his dahlias, while Gillian Pittaway’s fuchsias won her first prize.
The unusual size and shape of Jenny Nicholas’ courgette impressed judges, while Meryl Leach won best in show in the vegetable classes.
Marjorie Dunster came first in the crafts section with her creative calendar.
