HOOK Flower & Produce Show returns this weekend for an afternoon of celebration.

The annual event will take place on Sunday, and is open to the public between 2pm and 5pm.

There are 113 classes in the show, with rosettes being awarded in certain categories and the Best in Show receiving the Hortus Loci Trophy.

Amongst the more unusual classes are the ‘most humorous shaped vegetable’ and, open to under 15s, the vegemal category – an animal carved out of vegetables.

Sue Hinton, Lead Organiser of the event, said: “It is a great event that brings the community together to show off their horticultural and craft skills.

“Everyone is welcome to come along and see the exhibits.

“We also have refreshments including scrumptious cream teas and homemade cakes, sponsored by our local Tesco.”

Alongside the contest will be the announcement of the Hook in Bloom winner at 4pm.

Sue continued: “We are looking forward to announcing this year’s winner.

“It was very difficult to judge because even though we have had a rotten year gardening-wise, there has been a lot of good competition.”
