Hundreds of outstanding entries were seen at the Alconbury and District Horticultural Show last weekend as residents from around the area showcased their prized fruit, vegetables and flowers.
The event, which has been running for more than 100 years, saw exhibitor numbers increasing from previous years, with more people wanting to get involved in the show, which took place at the Memorial Hall.
Show secretary, Pauline Brice said: “It was another very successful show with a lot of great entries that were all at a great standard. The judges were quite pleased with the amount of entries that were entered.”
Despite a tough year of growing the judges were impressed with all the categories including crafts, home produce and photography, along with entries from youngsters in their dedicated categories,
One entry that stood out for the judges was a cherry tomato vine, which was grown by Jeremy Adams, who was given the Barry Freeman Trophy for his hard work.
Any profit from the show will be given back to the local community along with voluntary organisations including Brownies and Guides as well as local churches.
