The show is held annually, either in late August or early September, to showcase the culmination of village labours, whether they are in the garden, on the allotment or indoors.

A popular event, it includes fruit, vegetables, flowers, photographs, paintings, sewing, knitting and a host of craft.

A show spokesman said: “We were blessed with wonderful weather and possibly the hottest day of the summer. We would like to thank John Paul of Mepal Camera Club for recording the day.”

His shots can be seen on the Mepal Parish Council website.

The Jack Hensby judges eye catcher trophy went to Kathy Smith for her patchwork quilt while three year old Skye Olivia Jones won most trophies in the children’s section for her artwork.

Trophies were presented by Sir Hugh Duberly KCVO CBE, Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire.
