Encouraging number of children's entries at Tillmouth Show
Despite the difficult summer weather, the 61st Tillmouth Horticultural Society Show had many floral contributions although vegetable entries were down.
There was a good display of baking and handicrafts and the children’s section was boosted with lovely art work from Norham St Ceowulf’s First School.
The organisers were also encouraged to see some exhibits from children at other schools and hoped it was the start of continued support to help the show thrive in the future.
The fun dog show in particular was great fun.
