In pictures: Tickenham Flower Show

AN AFTERNOON of sun brought hundreds of people out to the annual Tickenham Flower Show.

Colourful exhibits filled the marquee on the village field, with 219 people entering more than 180 classes, and there were also games, stalls, demonstrations and a craft fair for the crowds to enjoy.

Music was provided by Portishead Concert Band and there was a hog roast and ice creams to tuck into. At the end of the successful show, produce was auctioned off to the highest bidders.
