THE most people in more than two decades turned out to showcase their skills in a traditional flower and vegetable event at Gorefield.
More than 200 people entered fruit, vegetables, flowers and crafts in the 22nd annual show at the brand new village pavilion which the organiser said was the most impressive range of entries she has seen becoming event organiser in 1991.
Marie Humphrey, who has organised the Gorefield event for the past 22 years, said; “This year was exceptional.
“It was certainly the best ever for numbers of people and the quality of work.
“The standard of entries was highly impressive,” she said.
Prize winning entries included two given posthumously to Fiona Timms whose work was entered by her husband John.
Her work won Best Handicraft Prize and Best Exhibit in Show for a painting of a race horse in watercolour.
Best flower and vegetable entry was awarded to Marie Humphrey while best Children’s exhibit went to Neve Curson.
