The memorial hall was packed with exhibits ranging from flowers to vegetables.

The show’s organisers challenged youngsters to follow a recipe and make a fruit cake and the judges were impressed with the high standards displayed.

So good were the young cooks that two of them entered the adult speciality cakes’ class, with Mia Hosford winning it with her KitKat-inspired creation.

Show secretary Jim Swords said: “We had a record number of entries – fruit was especially popular.

“A huge amount of people came out for the show and enjoyed tea and cakes on the lawns as it was a beautiful day.

“It was one of the best shows ever.”

Mr Swords has organised the show for the past 11 years but has decided to step down.

He said: “It’s nice to go out with a bang.
