FANTASTIC displays of fruit, vegetables and handicrafts were at the centre of two villages’ shared autumn show.

More than 600 people attended the seventh Thorpe Hesley and Scholes Village Show at Trinity Community Centre on Saturday, with organisers relieved by the day’s dry weather.

The show was opened by the Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Eve Rose Keenan.

Prizes were presented to winners in the horticultural, crafts, floral arrangements, cookery and children’s classes made fantastic displays  in the hall and church and performances were given by members of The Jill Hyde Leigh School of Dance, Wentworth Youth Theatre and Herbalife Fitness.

A dog show featuring various classes included “Dog most like its owner” was also popular, while a collection of food donated for the Holy Trinity Harvest Festival will be passed on to the Shiloh homelessness charity.

The raffle winners were R. Perry, E. Hackney, A. Brown, J. Varnam and R. Hunt.
