East Ord Show

There were plenty of exhibitors and a good attendance, considering the monsoon-like conditions.

Entries in the flower and vegetable sections were down on last year but that is always weather-led.

On the other hand the cookery and handicrafts were very well supported and the photography choices proved popular.

The children, once again, showed how talented they were.
