Hundreds of people spent time perusing homemade creations, from carrots to cushion covers, at this year’s St Ives Flower, Produce and Craft Show on August 27.

Now in its seventh year since being reformed, the show saw 10 categories for visitors and exhibitors to get involved in, from vegetables, flower arranging and fruit, to baking, photography and home brewing.

“It was amazing and a great day and lots of people turned out,” said Matthew Hall, chairman of the show.

“I think it’s been a slower growing year, but it was a really good turnout and I think the public enjoyed it as well. It was all amazing, and there were outstanding wines and beer and the judges really commented on that.”

This year also saw a raffle, auction, art exhibition, and a new Showstopper category where entrants made sets of afternoon tea, with £30 worth of Waitrose vouchers up for grabs.
