Sculthorpe’s ninth annual village show at the weekend brought out the cooks, the photographers, flower arrangers and the fruit and vegetable growers.

The event was started eight years ago by a group of enthusiasts who worked hard and successfully to bring back to life the village allotments which had fallen into disuse.

Their efforts did more than get many residents to ‘grow their own’.

It re-kindled a community spirit in the village and the event is now a firmly established annual village event.

Show secretary Jean Bourne said: “We’re very pleased with the entries in the flower section, the domestic classes are very good but we’re a bit down on the vegetables, particularly the tomatoes which suffered from the weather.”

Old hands dominated some of the classes but they did not have it all their own way with strong opposition from new entrants to the show, as well.

“It’s nice to see people, fairly new to the village, wanting to take part in the event,” said Mrs Bourne.
