It’s a family affair at classic pub leek show

FATHER and son Dave and Craig Taylor proved a class act at the Dyke Neuk Leek Show.

Organisers are delighted to have hosted another successful annual event at the Dyke Neuk pub near Meldon, with more than £4,000 in prize money dished out.

Club Treasurer and local farmer Dave Taylor won the show with a stand of leeks that measured in excess of 250cu/inches, and he also took the prize for the best leek of the show with a specimen grossing over 119cu/inches.

It is the second year running that Mr Taylor as won the event, but his triumph was not the only cause for cheer in the family as his son Craig took third place.

Other successes saw Brian Jonstone win the prize for most improved exhibitor, finishing in 11th place, and new members Ian Johnson and Dyje Neuk chef Mark Summerscales were delighted to make a mark in their first year, both well placed in the top 12 stands.
