Fruits, flowers and paintings were just some of the items on display this weekend at Ketton’s annual produce show.

The village hosted its 123rd event at Ketton Primary School on Sunday, which was organised by Ketton Horticultural Society.

A total of 150 people attended and 64 people showcased their fruit, vegetables, cakes, jams and jellies alongside art and craft work by children and adults. Alltogether there were 425 entries.

This year there was also a special First World War display from the Ketton Paint group and commemorative calligraphy by Cliff Herbert, which was organised by Ann Archer.

Show co-ordinator, Anne Alderson said: “The show went really well.

“We had an exceptional number of excellent apple entries, and there was a good selection of ot plants.

“We were pleased to see some new faces among the exhibitors, as well as welcoming back our old faithfuls from Oakham, Stamford and Peterborough.

“The only down side to the show was the theft of the Society’s two Advertising A-boards, one from each end of the village – this is now in the hands of the Leicestershire Police.”
