This year’s Godmanchester Show attracted hundreds of visitors to the town.
The show, which ran between continuously from 1886 to the 1960 and was ‘revived’ in 2015, had more than 200 visitors on Saturday.
Once again visitors to St Mary’s Church enjoyed a display of flowers, fruit and vegetables, art work, handicrafts, photographs, jams and cookery.
New competitions this year included small sculptures, a children’s collage on a sports theme, and a small brown crusty loaf category.
Victoria Richardson, Godmanchester Town Show secretary, said: “It was wonderful that so many people entered the competitions, and special mention should again be made of the pupils of St Anne’s School and the many newcomers to the town who joined in for the first time. There must be lots of very skilled and hard-working people in Godmanchester, and plenty who recognise the fun in participating in this local family activity. “
The mayor of Godmanchester, Councillor Sarah Conboy, presented the prizes and the awards made by Godmanchester in Bloom for 2018.
Cllr Conboy said: “What a fantastic show we’ve had this year, none of which would be possible were it not for the volunteers that organise it for us. It’s wonderful to see people joining in and taking part- we clearly have some very talented and some very green-fingered Godmanchester residents.”
