The village hall was the place to be on Saturday afternoon as it held Yatton Horticultural Society’s latest seasonal show.

There was, as ever, a multitude of classes for exhibitors to compete in, with the best displays winning certificates and trophies.

The floral displays are often the most colourful and eye-catching exhibits, but the show features a lot more than flowers.

Produce, including prize-winning parsnips and leeks by Dennis Knowles, was on show, as was home-brewed alcohol.
