Maureen Davis, show committee chairman, said: “It is really pleasing to see many new people taking part and winning trophies. The Summer Show Committee are indebted to local businesses who support the show by providing raffle prizes.

“In particular to Chapel Cottage Plants who every year provide a huge number of free plants which are sold to raise funds which go towards keeping the show going from year to year. This year we are also grateful to The Burnthouse Windmill Farm Fund who have helped with the cost of putting on the event.”
