Village show organisers were delighted with a good turn-out of entries to produce another successful event.

The Ellington Horticultural Society show once again proved popular with competitors and visitors alike turning up in droves to make a very successful day.

Participants excelled in the flowers and handicrafts classes, and the entries in the children’s classes were much better than expected. Unusually this year, the standard of the vegetable category was down on previous years.

Society chairman John Boaden put this down to the ‘long drawn-out winter, with spells of rain and now all the sunshine’.

He said: “The weather’s been very strange this year.

“It hasn’t affected the flowers though as they were smashing.”

Mr Boaden said the photography class and the children’s classes were notably outstanding as well.

Recent years have seen the number of children’s entries dwindling, with village shows becoming less of a staple in modern rural life. However, through the decision to allow people to enter their grandchildren into events, and working with the local schools to get more children to participate, numbers have been very promising this year.

Mr Boaden said that overall it was a ‘good all-round show.
