The best exhibit for those under nine years old went to Keiran Hubert-Price, and for those between nine and 12 years old it was won by Rhonni Matthews.

Show secretary Sue Marriott said: “The show committee was very pleased with the entries, which were up on last year, and the attendance in the afternoon.

“Tea and cakes were much enjoyed and lots of chat, exchanging tips and ideas about gardens and gardening.

“Entries from two classes at Greatham school made a lovely display of Easter cards and spring poems.”
