Standard of entries was high and there were a number of new faces as Longframlington Show took place on Saturday.

More accurately, it was the second instalment of the village’s show, as this year, organisers decided to hold the junior classes alongside a dog show and scarecrow exhibition in May.

This weekend’s edition was about the adults and their entries for the traditional classes in the horticultural and industrial sections.

Show secretary Veronica Thomson said: “The judges commented on the high standard of the entries and, despite the weather, lots of people came in the afternoon to view the efforts and applaud the winners.

“We were pleased to see many new names and faces, both from entrants and visitors. It was especially pleasing to see prizes won in the photography section by Ellie Owen, who has only just reached the age to enter the adult sections of the show, having just moved up to high school.

“She won a couple of the trophies in the Junior Show in May, but this achievement shows that her talents are at a very high standard.”
