Displays of flowers, flower arrangements. cookery, and photography were hosted in the Community Hall on April 6, and a produce stall was also set up.

Cynthia Clue, show secretary, said: “It was a successful show with slightly more entries than previous years and being a fine day meant the support was good too. The refreshments offered went down very well - like always - home made cakes always go down well!”

The spring show has a number of classes, welcoming entries from everyone who would like to take part. As they are open to eveyone, the classes provide children and families with the opportunity to enter.
