An event that has become an historical part of the annual Ely calendar held its 88th annual show with impressive tables full of displays for visitors to browse.

With 18 sections and around 160 classes to choose from there was plenty for people to get stuck into at the Ely and District Horticultural Society show.

From giant onions and begonias to home made jam, knitwear and cross stitch, the talents of local people were on display at the great Autumn show at Paradise Leisure Club.

The event takes weeks of hard work to prepare in a two day weekend celebration of homegrown and home made goods.
