Homemade gin and giant pumpkins took centre stage at Little Paxton’s annual flower and vegetable show on Saturday.

There were 220 exhibits entered into the show this year and giant pumpkins made a grand entrance for the heaviest vegetable class.

The beer festival was popular with 400 pints sold during the day and there was musical entertainment provided by a quintet from Bedford Brass.

Jenny Gellatly, Little Paxton Parish Council clerk and show secretary said: “The event was very successful, it was lovely to see members of the community enjoying themselves and everyone was social distancing.”
