SOME grew giant onions, while others settled for the best home-grown fruit in a basket.

Artistic talent was also on show, with paintings and crafts telling a story of life in Fenland.

And it was all under one roof, for Gorefield's 18th annual Flower, Vegetable and Craft Show on Saturday.

It was the chance for villagers to display anything which was home-grown, cooked, painted, photographed or crafted.

Entries were about the same as last year - but Marie Humphrey, one of the event organisers, said it was again a success.

"There was a lot of talent on show," she said. "It was another brilliant year."

The show ended with the usual auction of produce.

Money raised by the event will go towards the new playing field pavilion and hall.

The show also marked the village's second scarecrow competition. This year's theme was occupations and the winners were Mr and Mrs Alec Gagen with their clerk scarecrow - complete with computer, mouse and telephone.
