The Coach Inn at Lesbury staged its annual onion show, with 13 members taking part.

Top spot and best onion in show went to George Curry, pictured right.

Ron Thompson, left, took the newly-introduced John Hardy memorial prize with fifth place. John, who is warmly remembered, served as secretary at the club for several years, but never achieved a higher position than fifth with his exhibits.

The show was judged by Jimmy Givens. Produce auctioned by Hugh Tulip after the event raised £227 for HospiceCare North Northumberland.

Members want to thank Joe and Louise of the Coach Inn for hosting the event.
