DESPITE an awful summer of weather, an impressive number of entries were submitted for this year’s Hebron Village Show.

The produce tables included some delightful displays.

Children’s entries were up, especially the vegetable animal category, and Olivia Dungait’s baking knocked the grown-ups off their perch with her winning fruit scones.

Linda Bright displayed baubles, a Christmas craft she is offering in the Village Hall on December 6 between 7pm and 9pm.

Tickets cost £6, to include mulled wine and a mince pie, and will go on sale in November.
