DESPITE the erratic weather this summer, Harrowby Horticultural Show still saw a bumper crop of entries at the weekend.

Star attraction was Alec Bell’s tremendous cabbage which had plenty of on lookers at the Church of the Ascension exclaiming “Corr! What a whopper!”

Show organiser George Harrison was more than happy with this year’s event.

He said: “The gladioli were really eye-catching and when people saw the cabbages they were amazed!

“It’s been a bad year for the weather but we’ve done surprisingly well. Our only worry each year is trying to fit everything into the church hall!”
