THE fruits of an entire summer’s labour will be on display when a popular show returns this weekend.

The annual Allendale Horticultural & Industrial Show will take place for the 165th time on Saturday.

Allendale Primary School will once again provide the venue for the event, where local exhibitors will showcase an array of flowers, fruits and vegetables.

Food lovers are in for a real treat, with a mouth-watering industrial section displaying the finest in baked delights, including cakes, pastries, chutney and jams.

Artists and craftspeople will also be among the exhibitors, with impressive examples of knitting, cross-stitch and card making, while photographers will bring along prints of picturesque scenes.

There will also be a children’s section, which will include entries from both Allendale Primary School and Allendale Pre-School.

Another key feature of the show will be the judging of the best garden competition, open to exhibitors in the East and West Allen Valleys, including residents with a Langley postal address.

The show usually invites a special guest to present a wide range of trophies and prizes.

This year, BBC Look North newscaster Alison Freeman will preside over the presentation, which will be followed by a sale of exhibits and a raffle.

John Short, of the Allendale Floral and Horticultural Society, said there would be numerous activities for children and that the show would make for a great family day out.

There will be face painting, balloon modelling, junior football and a range of other sports and games.

Allendale Horticultural & Industrial Show will open to the public at 1pm on Saturday.

However exhibitors can set up from 7am and judging will take place from 10am.
