Judges were impressed with the quality of exhibits at Northchapel Vegetable and Flower Show on Sunday.

Bearing in mind the prolonged dry spell during the peak growing season, the gardeners had done well to produce 235 entries across the various classes.

The show received financial support from Northchapel Parish Council and the prizes were presented by the Rev Peter Hayes.

The children’s My Monet art class attracted a great deal of interest and Rhiannon Sneller was named the overall winner.

There was also a fine display of decorated terracotta flower pots created by the younger children, with Bryony Bicknell-Strange named overall winner.

The prizes for the children’s classes were generously provided by Daphne Trussler.
