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.”
