A 'great' Whissendine Craft and Produce Show in Rutland for 2019
The heaviest tomato, a handmade walking stick and recycled materials, were just some of the new classes for entry at the Whissendine Craft and Produce Show.
It was held at St Andrew's Church on Saturday.
Jean Penny, from the committee, said: "It was another great year with 623 exhibits.
"St Andrew’s Church looked magnificent with so much colour and wonderful scents from the flowers, produce and crafts.
"It is amazing how many talented people live in Whissendine in terms of art, craft, baking, photography and of course growing wonderful flowers and impressive vegetables.
"Lots of people came to view when the show opened after judging and enjoyed a cup of tea with homemade cake."They then stayed to see the Reverend Deborah Marsh congratulate everyone who had entered and awarded the prizes."
Four prize winners to note were Sarah Body, who won the trophy for most points in the show, Jo-Ann Millington, who won the prize for the best exhibit in the art and craft sections, Liliana Stewart who won the Junior Shield (aged up to eight years) and Kyanne Wardhaugh who won the Junior Shield (aged nine – 16).
