The judges were impressed with the quality of the produce on display at Northchapel Village Hall, in Pipers Lane, and the creative talents demonstrated in other classes.

New classes this year included photography and home-made drinks, both of which proved very popular.

The show received financial support from the parish council and the chairman, Lynda Bell, presented the prizes.
