ORGANISERS of Saturday’s Benwick village show are hoping that an improved turnout will be bettered next year.

An array of vegetables, flower displays and hand-made creations were seen by judges during the show’s third year at Benwick Village Hall.

Patricia Tickner, chair of the village hall committee, said: “Every year so far we seem to have had more entries and people turning up on the day to see what people have made and grown.

“This year we were particularly delighted with the number of children who brought their creations to the show.

“It’s nice to get people from our village together and give them a chance to be creative.”

A number of categories were scored by judges who awarded Albert Sismey the overall men’s prize for his mix of home-grown fruit, vegetables and home-made jams and chutneys.

A planned disco in the evening was cancelled due to a lack of interest but organisers still hope to hold one at next years event.

All monies raised from the show will go towards the up-keep of Benwick Village Hall.
