The hard work of gardeners, jam makers and artists was enjoyed when the 89th Great Autumn show was held in Ely.

The event, staged by the City of Ely and District Horticultural Society, attracted a steady flow of visitors throughout the day who enjoyed more than 150 entries across a wide range of categories.

Peter Holden, vice chairman, said: “There were some very good vegetables and flowers, particularly begonias.

“Everybody was pleased with the results and the visitors were also satisfied that it was an enjoyable event.”

Classes included fruit, vegetables, flowers, floral arrangements, handicrafts, photographs, home made produce exhibited by adults and children.

There were refreshments, raffle prizes, and a produce stall.
