Horticultural entries were down at Chiddingly’s summer show, due to the very late arrival of good weather - but members still managed to come up with some top exhibits.

Spokesperson Janet Gasson said, “Good photography and cookery sections made up for this, and the children’s classes were, as usual, a delight, thanks to great support from Rainbows and Brownies. It was, as always, a very pleasant social afternoon.”
