Over 600 exhibits in categories, ranging from Horticulture to Lego Models, attended the 45th Backwell Village Show at the Parish Hall recently.

Around 120 people attended the festival, which saw Dahlia classes have the most entries and there were outstanding exhibits in Art & Craft.

Cup winners included Helen Brayshaw, for her flowers, Bill Smith, for his vegetables, the Clarke-Jacobs Family, for a family display depicting their allotment, George Jackson for under-11s and Emily Freeman in the teenagers' age group. 

Freya Maitland won both the best child's artwork and the under-sevens cup, while Reuben Barfield was awarded for the Best Child's Craft Exhibit.

The show ran all afternoon, accompanied by displays from local community groups, such as the newly re-formed Backwell WI and the Backwell Allotments, as well as stalls such as Five Acre Farm, who raised awareness of their Volunteer Days. 

Chair of the show, Nicola Everitt said: "It is a testament to the hard work and innovation of the committee and other volunteers, that this village show continues to be well-supported and grows each year.

"Our new website and online entry form made it even easier for local families to participate, and we are so pleased that over 120 people brought their entries to share with the village this year. "
