Kathleen Stuart took the honours at the final Burnside Leek Show.

The show has been going since 1978, but has had to end after the closure of the Burnside Inn at Longhoughton.

First place went to Kathleen with Simon Nolan second and Nicola Nolan third.

Money left in the show account will be given to the Great North Air Ambulance. The committee is hoping to donate £267.

Secretary/treasurer Rita Pringle said: “It is with great regret that we have to end here. The committee would like to thank all members, new and old, for their support over the years.”
