Photos and results from the 2013 Burnham-On-Sea Horticultural Show

Hundreds of colourful entries - from flowers and vegetables to fruit - went on display at Burnham-On-Sea Horticultural Society’s 46th annual show on Saturday (August 10th).

Residents from across the Burnham-On-Sea area displayed their skills at the popular event, which was held at Burnham Community Centre in Berrow Road.

David Bryant, Show Secretary, told "The standard of entries has again been impressive and, even though the number of classes was reduced this year from 129 to 88, we had just under 300 great entries."

Judges Monica Huntley and Valerie Davis agreed the quality had again been high despite a difficult growing season. Full results are shown further down this page.
