The popular event saw people turn-up in their droves at the village memorial hall on Saturday afternoon.

People entered competitions to win awards for best homegrown garden produce, flower arrangements and cakes.

The show received a warm welcome after it took a year's hiatus in the village, and impressive displays took centre-stage on the day.

A delighted Mary Murray won the Children's Bakery Cup for her delicious fruit cake and John Lee's prize-winning onions also impressed the judges.

A spokesman for the event said: "After missing the annual show last year, it was good once again to have the opportunity to see products of a range of skills back on display.

"There were some familiar adult names on the prizewinners' certificates, and some first-time younger names, who, hopefully, will return next year."
