Nailsea and District Horticultural Society held its summer show at Nailsea School on Saturday, with a wide range of top-quality exhibits on show.

Fantastic flowers, prize vegetables and quirky crafts were on display, with Colin Griffin and Nora Ford among the winners at the fair.

Chairman Martyn Davis was delighted with how the event went.

He said: "It was splendid. We had more than 550 people there.

"The flowers were very good. It has been very dry and we thought the horticultural stuff might be a bit thin, but they were excellent and we were very pleased with the vegetables.

"I would like to thank all of the exhibitors. Without them we would not have a show. It makes all the hard work worthwhile."
