Trophies handed out at 21st annual Holyport Village Show

Prize pumpkins and courgettes were on display at the 21st annual Holyport Village Show.

Dozens of trophies were handed out to those with the best vegetables, crafts or table centre pieces.

There was a large contingent of children's entries ranging from artwork to best decorated gingerbread men.

Held at the Holyport Memorial Hall in Moneyrow Green on Saturday, families braved the rain to come out and enjoy the traditional afternoon.

The classes have remained much the same over the years, with just one new addition for the 2016 event of 'Cottage Collection', which is a variety of vegetables.

Andy Birrell, of the village show committee, said: "It's gone really well, very good attendance, even right to the end.

"We try and get as many children involved as possible, then of course their parents join in as well.

"It is free for them to enter the classes, and only 25 pence if they wanted to try an adult class."

Andy's family won the trophy for the family with the most points overall from entering a variety of classes with his wife and two children.

The event also donates any proceeds from the day to a chosen charity decided by the committee after the final count is made.

Last year Maidenhead Foodshare, the Holyport Scout Hut and Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service benefited.

Details of how to enter the 2017 Holyport Village Show will be advertised from April. Go to for information.
