There were more than 450 entries for this year’s St Ives Flower, Produce and Craft Show.
The annual event returned to the town’s corn exchange on Saturday and saw eager entrants prepare, preen, and polish their produce ready for display and judging.
A colourful array of fruits and vegetables sat alongside crafts, jams, preserves, cut flowers, photography, and baked items as the best the town had to offer was presented.
Richard Weightman, a member of the organising team, said: “Everybody really enjoyed the day. The weather was great and we had a lot of people come through the doors to have a look around, too.”
The RHS Banksian Medal, for the most points in the vegetable, fruit, and cut flower classes, was won by Giuseppe Videtti, while the Holmes Trophy – the overall prize for the most points accrued across all classes - was won by Jude Ongeri with 36 points.
Second place went to Louise O’Brien (35 points), with Robin Bletsoe and Mr Videtti in joint third (29 points).
