Despite some poor weather in the days leading up to the Feniton Flower and Craft Show, there was a good standard of entries, according to organisers.
The annual event was held at the weekend and featured a total of 396 entries from 67 exhibitors.
Entries Secretary Les Ley said: “The period leading up to the show had not been good for the flowers with several days of strong winds and heavy rain.
“However a good standard of entries were exhibited across the full range of classes.”
He said Mike Hawkins had another successful day winning the trophies for the vegetables, flowers and dahlias.
Mr Hawkins also achieved the most points in the show with Adam Carnall being the runner up.
Maggie Pipe won the cup for most points in the flower arrangement section and Les Ley came out on top in the cookery section with Jenny Broom picking up the award for the best exhibit.
Mr Ley said: There was a particularly large entry in the craft section with the main winners being Margaret Imms, Bill Knollman and Lindsay Hamilton.
“The junior classes were split into two age groups and Finlay Barrass won the cup for 10 years and under, with Alex Maries triumphing in the 11 to 16 group.
“India Morgen, Oliver White and Abigail Maries also did well in the junior section.”
He also said that the parish council trophy for the best front garden went to Brian Carnall.
The flower show committee extended its grateful thanks to all those who provided sponsorship by way of vouchers for the various winners.
