The village of Hurstbourne Tarrant held it's Centenary Flower Show and Fete over the weekend.

The first show was held in 1913, and the local paper reported it as having been a "fine" show. With a wide range of attractions including merry go rounds. The first prize for the winner of the potato competition was £1 - a level at which it has stayed until today. In the 1950s there was a Bowling a Pig competition with the winner coming from Ashmansworth to take away the prize.

The proceeds from the show go towards the church, the new village hall and other local charities. Sir George cut the Centenary Cake, naked by Sue Jones, before giving out the prizes and trophies for the winners of the vegetable and and flower shows.

"Top Marks to the organisers and stall holders for a marvellous day in the sun with a wide range of attractions, including a Punch and Judy Show, a Dog Show and some live music."
