BLESSED with good weather for another year running, this year’s Kirkwhelpington Show pulled in the crowds.

The show tent showed off a wealth of local talent through the selection of home-made and homegrown goods.

It was a lucky day for Anne Johnson, who was a new name to go on the cup for baking, shortly followed by the Kirkwhelpington and District Show cup for most industrial points.

In the handicraft section, it was Sheila Nevin who took home the cup for the most points in the handicrafts section.

The prize for best water colour went to Vivienne Potts in the art section, whilst the prize for the best garden painting was won by Anne Telfer.

In the horticultural section it was Craig Bertram who won the cup for most points for vegetables, and Jane Armstrong for flowers with Jane winning the Charles Moffit Memorial cup for total number of points in horticulture.

The Foley book prizes went Bethan Kitchin and Zach Hofmann. Zach was also awarded the child with the most points in the children’s section, the cup for best child’s exhibit was won by Archie Patrick.

Aside from the traditional classes was entertainment in the form of a family treasure hunt, morris dancing and basketball.
