Held at King's House Gardens, the event attracted more than 30 entrants who submitted their items into one of the 105 categories, which included produce, flowers, jams and handicraft.

There was a children's section with beautifully decorated ginger bread men and vegetable sculptures entered.

The club's chairman Brian Farrell said: 'We try and put on a display to give the public something to look at. We are all growers but there are no specialists.

'It is an open show and not just for members. People can come along and show what they can do.
