Hundreds flooded into the St Ives produce and flower show on Saturday to discover what the town has to offer.

Over 400 eye catching exhibits were on display at the Corn Exchange including amazing floral arrangements, the largest marrow competition as well as homemade cakes, paintings and school projects.

One of the organisers John McKinnie said: “This year’s show was yet another success; we had a lot of great feedback from the public they loved seeing the enthusiasm of people.”

This year’s best in show and winner of the event’s Holmes Trophy was Jude Ongeri who had entered a number of categories including fruit, flowers, herbs and plants.

She was also crowned with the RHS Banksian Medal which is for those that have the most points for vegetables, fruit and cut flowers.
