Despite the unsettled weather, there was a good turnout at the Chinnor Flower and Produce Show with more than 700 exhibits of vegetables, fruits, flowers, crafts, flower arranging, photographs, wine and a children’s section.

Peter Robertson won the Nicholls Blue Riband Shield for the best exhibit in the show for his collection of vegetables, while Nia Haddon was awarded the Edith Naylor Cup for the best children’s exhibit, a frog made out of vegetables.

The Henry Nixey Trophy was awarded at the discretion of the Show’s committee to someone who had provided a valuable and considerable contribution during the year and it was presented by President Tony Naylor to Pat Trunkfield, who is the Judge for the flower arranging.

The Chinnor Flower and Produce Show is an annual event which takes place every bank holiday Monday in a marquee on the playing fields, provided by Chinnor Parish Council.

A Show spokesman said: “The show is in its 102nd year, making it one of the oldest events in the village. A small but effective committee organises the show with extra volunteers to help on the day.”
