Show secretary Sheila Smith said there were less chrysanthemums this year than in previous years.

She said: “We had a pretty good turn out of people. There were not as many flowers on display.

“I think it is the weather. It’s not been like a normal summer. I think the weather mixes them up.” The show, which was attended by about 300 people, also had a raffle and tombola.
