Flower arrangements, decorations, paintings and home-made cakes and jams were a plenty at this year’s Edenham Produce Show.

The 290 entries included a beetroot that “grew and grew” into 3lbs, winning the Disaster category and a miniature garden by William Green, 10, which won the show’s most outstanding entry prize.

Ruth Atter is a member of the organising committee of Steam Action, the group that has been hosting the Produce Show for 37 years.

She said: “It has been a long-term project and it’s hard work, but it’s so worth it. Seeing all the things that people make is very rewarding.”

Money raised at the show and other events organised by the committee during the year go into a fund that is used to buy presents and host at party at Christmas for the village’s 60 elderly residents.
