It was great to see so many of you at the Annual Show this year. We had lots of impressive entries into the vegetable, fruit, flower and baking categories despite the difficult growing conditions over the summer. We also enjoyed delicious cakes and savoury snacks along with a plant sale and learning more about bees. Take a look at all the winners below and a selection photos from the day.

Thanks to all the volunteers to helped set up and tidy away on the day in addition to everyone who baked cakes and donated plants. Thanks also to Helen Lawrence and Nadia Mackenzie for some of the photos below.
