Congresbury Horticultural Society organised the event, which was held at the Old School Rooms in Station Road on Saturday.

As well as the usual display of prize-winning fruit and vegetables, there was also a plant sale, raffle and cake stall.

Trophies were given for the best photography display and the top exhibit from a member of the allotment society, as well as for the perfect fruits, flowers and vegetables.

In the domestic classes, competitors battled to take home the prize for the tastiest homemade chutney, jam and gingerbread family.

There was something for all ages at the show, as children were also invited to make friendship bracelets and grow watercress.
