Business was blooming at the 34th annual Ganton Show with lots of entries - despite a poor growing season.

Sunday’s (September 2) event was held at Ganton Village Hall and was open to the public from 1.30pm after judging was completed.

Christine Gretton, one of the committee members, said it went extremely well. She added: “We were very surprised at how well the entries held up – considering the growing season.

“I’m not sure they’d be up but they were on a par with what we’d had in the past.”

It was organised by the Ganton and District Horticultural Association and classes were run to rules and standards of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Handbook.

Produce was judged in a variety of classes including sweet peas where the top prize was won by Roy Parker.

As well as produce classes there were a number of others including jams, home produce, wine, handicrafts, photography and a children’s section.
