THIS year's Kirkwhelpington and District Show was once again blessed with good weather, with the entries from competitors filling the show tents with colour.

The horticultural section was dominated by Jane Armstrong, who took home the new Geoff Coatsworth memorial cup for the most points in the flowers section.

She also took home the Charles Moffit cup for most horticultural points and the cup for the vegetable section, narrowly fending off competiton from Craig Bertram.

It was also a successful show for Catherine Hogg, who won the cup for baking and preserves and the Kirkwhelpington and District Show cup for most industrial points overall.

In the children's section, two children particularly excelled. Tilly Homes took home the Foley book prize for the girl with the most points and the Jane Robson cup for best exhibit, while Harry Patrick took home the Foley book prize for boy with the most points as well as the show cup for the child with the most points.

The show's organisers also put on a variety of entertainment to go alongside the traditional classes - a climbing tower brought by Northumbria Army Cadet Force well received, while the day was rounded off by a ceilidh in the village hall.
