A food festival, a proms night and a flower show are just some of the events which have been keeping people busy in Hutton.

A huge marquee was set up in St Mary’s Field and thousands of people visited it during four days of events in the village.
Around 2,000 people went to the first of the big events, Taste Of Somerset.
The food festival was organised by Sarah Cope and this year it raised money for Comfort And Warmth, a Weston-based charity which helps the homeless, and Hutton Village Hall, which is looking to install new, more energy-efficient lighting.

The festival saw more than 60 stallholders sell food and drink, while visitors also enjoyed a display of classic cars and children’s entertainment throughout the day.

Hutton is well known for being home to beautiful floral displays and some of the village’s talented gardeners showed off their finest work in the show marquee this weekend.
Hutton Horticultural Society’s annual show saw dozens enter classes to showcase their flowers and home-grown vegetables.
There was also a 1960s-themed night, a church service with songs of praise, and a proms concert held in the marquee at the weekend.

Steve Cope, who is treasurer of the horticultural society and clerk to Hutton Parish Council, said the event could not have been put together without the hard work of volunteers.

Janice Webber from the Times Past Cheese Dairy.
“This is the 12th year we have done this series of events now and all in all it was a great weekend.”
He said the weekend gets people in the village excited months before it happens, but added it also attracts people from
all around – with guests from as far afield as Canada attending this year.
