Things are on the up for the Towcester Produce Show after the Town Hall was packed with flowers, vegetables and handicrafts on Bank Holiday Monday.

Drisc Wardle of the Towcester Allotment and Garden Association which organises the annual show said: “The number of entries was up on last year, and the number of people taking part was up on last year, and there were a lot of new faces to the show which is really positive. But also the number of people coming through the door to see the show was up on last year.”

This year the show featured 64 classes including the usual range of vegetables, flower,home produce and fruit classes.

There were also six classes for, under 5s, under 8s and under 11s including prizes for the best animal made from vegetables and the tallest weed.

Mrs Wardle added: “The people judging were pleased with the quality of the exhibits. The children’s side of things was very much expanded and we had a lot entrants and we had some particularly delightful entries in to the handwriting class.

“Judges had real trouble deciding which one was the best, because they were all of a high standard, and in the end it came down to absolute perfection.”
