More than 500 visitors and 91 exhibitors made this year’s Produce and Craft Show at the Rising Sun Country Park a great success.

Exceptional quality in growing classes, homecraft and children’s entries showcased the wealth of talent in North Tyneside.

There was also an opportunity for local crafters to take part in this year’s show, with their products ranging from jewellery, to smoked food products and relishes, to beautiful nursery plants.

Visitors had the chance to learn some new skills too, with flower arranging and planting demonstrations on offer from the Adult Learning Alliance.

Ann Barron was named the winner of the Alison Best Memorial Trophy, presented for the winner of a floral art class.

Alison died several years ago, having been an artist and horticulture fan. Much of her work had a floral theme and when she died her family commissioned the trophy.
