THE Ely and District Horticultural Society's autumn show was a riot of colour this weekend.
Now in its 79th year, the show at Ely's Paradise Centre won praise for the standard of its entries.
Organiser Gerald Rolfe said: "Some of the horticultural classes were down in entries mainly due to the excesses of the weather during recent weeks, but the judges again commented upon the good standards achieved in the circumstances."
He said the 'dry' side of the show, including handicrafts, photography, home-made produce and children's classes, provided imaginative exhibits and demonstrated the wide range of skills and interests in the community.

Mr Rolfe added that there were also creditable exhibits in the flower arranging classes, depicting the World Cup and the Gunpowder Plot, and the wine judge noted that some of the bottles met commercial standards.
