In photos: Burnham-On-Sea MP hands out awards at Mark Show

Burnham-On-Sea's MP was the special guest at the annual flower and vegetable show in the village of Mark on Saturday (August 27th).

Tessa Munt presented the trophies, cups and certificates to the 19 winners of this year's show held in the village hall.

Dozens of entries, ranging from flowers and vegetables to artwork, went on display, to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

Show Secretary Joan Thompson told "There were slightly fewer people entering this year, but the judges were still impressed with the quality and range of entries."

Tessa added: "It was particularly wonderful to see so many entries from young people this year. I was delighted to present the awards and catch up with many of neighbours and friends in my home village."
