Organisers of this summer’s Godmanchester Town Show are hoping to top last year’s event when they had more than 700 entries - including over 200 from St Anne’s School.

The show will be held at St Mary’s Church on September 15 and will feature displays of the best of produce and crafts from members of the community.

People who live in the town, or are members of Godmanchester-based organisations, are eligible to enter.

A spokesman for the show said: “This year we are hoping to do even better and we have introduced some new categories which we hope you will like.

“The aim is for everybody to have a fun day and we wish all the entrants the very best of luck with their exhibits.”
