More than 800 exhibits were entered into Doddington Horticultural Society's 61st annual show, with classes for both adults and children.

Competition prizes were presented by Sue Dougan, of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. Hereward FM's Black Thunder crew also attended to encourage more people to visit and to hand out goodies to children.

Lyne Green, secretary of the horticultural society, said: "It was very pleasing to find that considering the weather we have encountered, the entries in the vegetable section achieved an all-time high.

"Adult entries were up from 467 last year to 549, but the children's entries were down from 355 to 274. This was very disappointing but appears to be due to holidays."
