It is 70 years since the first flower show was held in Tickenham, and the traditional event was shown to still be in rude health when it took place at the weekend.

The village hall was as busy as ever with dozens of colourful displays on show waiting to be judged.

But, despite the name, Tickenham Flower Show is more than just an exhibition of floral arrangements.

Everything from scrumptious sweet honey, through to beautifully baked bread rolls was on show throughout Saturday afternoon.

Children were again encouraged to take part in the festival too and Alfie Filliter’s impressive vegetable crocodile won him a well-deserved first prize certificate.
