Cadney cum Howsham’s revived village show attracted a splendid entry, as well as plenty of admirers when the doors finally opened for villagers to take a look and study the winners and also rans.

Prize giving ended the proceedings followed by the auction of produce.

As well as fruit and veg there were classes for baking judged by Dorothy Matthewman, flowers – Helen Boothman, handicrafts – Jean Threlfall, eggs, beer and more.

There were several children’s classes, including photography, miniature garden, baking, novelty cakes and Lego vehicles.

Committee members were delighted at the success of the event.

Fiona Leahy, of the village organising committee, said: “The last show was back in 1963 and we have been amazed at the number of entries. In total we had 255 in the various classes.

It’s been a huge success.”
