GET your best beetroot and tallest sunflowers in order for the Ely Horticultural Society's Great Autumn Show.

The annual event will be held at Ely's Paradise Centre over the weekend of August 26/27. Entries can be accepted up to 9.30am on the Saturday, but organisers have asked people to get them in by next Thursday if possible.

The show offers 15 sections, ranging from flower and vegetable classes to photographs, handicrafts, home-made produce, wines and flower-arrangers. Children and young people have special classes, which have grown in popularity in recent years.

More than 50 trophies and medals can be won by the competitors and there is also £700 in prize money.

Bulbs for autumn planting, as well as salad and vegetable produce donated by sponsors, will also be available.

INFO: Entry forms can be obtained from show co-ordinator Gerald Rolfe, by telephoning 01353 663487.
