REFURBISHMENT of the village hall meant Greatham’s flower and produce show was held later than usual this year.

The number of people entering was little changed on last year but the number of entries was well up.

The weather over the year seemed to affect the fruit and vegetables as well as the flower entries but the home produce entries were up.

Edward Day took the fruit and vegetable trophy as well as the best in show for his beefsteak tomatoes, and the most points in the show.

Rebecca Dowling narrowly beat Sid Newman for the flower cup, but Sid triumphed over her in the flower arranging trophy.

The handmade item class was shared between David Redman and John Sadler for their engineering models. The children’s art and craft winners were Emily Probert and Tom Probert. Tony Carr won the homecraft section.

Tony, who is part of the show’s organising group, said: “Overall, it was an excellent show with colourful displays and several new faces entering. With tasty teas and cakes provided, our thanks to all the committee and the kitchen helpers.”
