Dozens of people stopped by to admire some of the produce on show, including narcissi and daffodils, home made wines, and handicrafts.

There was also a special section for children and young exhibitors.

Judges cast their eyes over the exhibits before, with the winners announced, the doors of the hall were thrown open to the public.
