And on a sweltering afternoon many villagers turned out to admire the flowers, fruit and vegetables as well as the home-produce, handicrafts and photography laid out around the hall for the judges to examine.

Organiser Penny Masterton, told the Observer: “It was another very successful year for the Heyshott summer show with many exhibits for everyone to admire.

“Amongst the beautiful flowers and home-baking was a gifted display of needlework and pottery as well as an array of interesting paintings by the toddlers playgroup.”

“There was a repeat of last year when the vegetable exhibits were a little down but there were enough to keep the judges busy,” added Mrs Masteron. “Everyone agreed that it was a very happy village day.”
