Dozens of families enjoyed the festivities at last Thursday’s Michael Horticulture and Produce Show which raised hundreds of pounds for good causes.
Trophies and other prizes were awarded across a range of disciplines from making honey, sweets and jams to poetry, photography and handwriting.
The sports hall at Michael School was packed during the afternoon for the community event and there was standing room only for the evening’s auction of produce led by John Kennaugh.
Donations of £400 each were presented to the school and the new Breast Care Unit at Noble’s Hospital, the show’s chosen charity for 2014.
Organiser Janet Foss thanked the show’s helpers, judges and entrants, and paid tribute to the huge support from the village community.
