75th West Huntspill Flower Show impresses with more than 750 entries

The 75th annual West Huntspill Show attracted hundreds of entries on Saturday (August 17th).

There were more than 750 entries across the classes submitted from over 100 exhibitors.

The judges said classes were difficult to judge because the standards were so high.

The Burnham and Highbridge town band were in attendance alongside Town Crier Alastair Murray and Reverend Tonia Nixon.

One of the organisers, Jane Moreton, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "This was the 75th year that the flower show has been running."

"May we take the opportunity to thank all those who played a part in making our show so successful - growers and showers, prize givers, stall holders and tea makers as well as the committee and friends who contribute in many ways throughout the year."

She added: "The committee, particularly Colin Parish and Bridget O'Neill, put together an exhibition of the society through the ages and this will be available to be seen on 20th September at our next committee meeting."
