Delayed show seeks top quality

SHOW organisers are expecting a high standard this year after allowing an extra two weeks for growing.

The annual Mitford Open Show takes place in the Village Hall on Saturday, a fortnight later than usual.

The extra time has been given following difficult growing conditions last year to enable gardeners to show their produce at its best. There will also be the regular cookery and crafts sections.

The show is open to all, with benching of exhibits from 8.30am to 11.30am. It opens for viewing at 2pm.
