AFTER 21 years, the Stansted Garden show still draws the crowds.

The three-day show saw more than 300 stands, which included plants, gifts, arts and craft, country food and wine, activities and entertainment, and local charities set up in the grounds of the historic Stansted House.

Annie Sloan, creator of Chalk Paint decorative paint, put on masterclass paint demonstrations in the marquee, showing ways to transform furniture.

The park’s ancient chapel was brimming with flower arrangements from Emsworth Afternoon Flower Club in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support nurses.

Children had their faces painted, painted pots, got lost in the maze, rode the model railway and played in the fairground.

The aim of the show is to give visitors the opportunity to find items for the house and garden which are not easily available on the high street.
