A large number of Kingston Seymour villagers turned out for this year’s show.

The quality of exhibits, across all the classes, was very high.

For the younger entrants, art classes and baking categories were especially popular – with the standard impressively high.

Traditional village show competitions, including vegetable growing, were also run at the show.

One of the most eye-catching displays at the village hall though was produced by Mike Hedger. His craftsmanship of two hares was deservedly given a first-place prize by the impressed judges.
