Ketton Horticultural Society’s annual show provided some colour and light with autumn in the air on Sunday.

Visitors to the show in the Primary School Hall were treated to a vast array of displays.

Vic Henry, communications and press officer, said: “There were vegetables and fruit to die for and floral blooms that would do justice to the Chelsea Flower Show, all featured in what has been a tricky year for gardeners.

“There may have been a few entries down on previous years but the quality remained high.”
