HUNDREDS of people turned out for Denmead’s 64th annual village show.
The sound of jazz music set the tone of the event, which saw a number of prizes handed out for the village’s green-fingered residents.
A dog show and children’s events kept young ones occupied during the fun on Saturday.
Ron Brumhill, who has been the show secretary until recently when he had an operation, said he would like to thank Barry and Lynda Glenister and Liz Williams who had stepped in to make the show a success.
He said: ‘It was the 64th annual village show and was organised by me. There were shows outside and inside the church hall and our horticultural show.
‘It was a good event and there was a large amount of interest, which was very positive.
‘There were lots of people here. The quality of entries in this year’s horticultural show was good.’
Mr Brumhill said that each year villagers are told of the categories in advance and invited to enter their produce on the big day.
‘It has all the different categories and people choose which ones they want to go in for, such as six identical potatoes on a plate.
‘We had categories like fruit and vegetables, floral art, showers, home-making and handicrafts.’
