The 76th Alderley Edge Village Show, organised by the Alderley Edge Allotments and Gardens Society, proved another big success at the weekend.
Just under 450 exhibits were registered for the annual event which attracted a steady flow of visitors to Festival Hall on Saturday, 9th September.
Sixty-one exhibitors entered the competitive show, with classes for flowers, fruit and vegetables, domestic crafts, cookery, photographs or works of art - as well as children's classes.
Fenton Simpson, Chairman of Alderley Edge Allotments and Gardens Society, presented the 29 cups and trophies.
The show saw a new star in Philippa Stewart who was the overall winner of the Best Horticultural exhibit in the show. She reigned supreme in the flower classes. Chris Yearsley, as always, produced wonderful exhibits in the vegetables and fruit classes with Jennifer Cockshott, Elaine Ockelton and Jenny Palin producing very impressive results across cookery and handicraft classes.
Councillor Mike Dudley-Jones said "A huge thanks to all of the show committee, the judges and stewards, the show administrators and the cafe team.
"The Festival Hall is a truly great venue and a place all the residents of Alderley Edge should be very proud of. A big thank you to Catherine and Andrew at the Festival Hall for all their help."
