ONE of the surviving village shows in south Cambridgeshire is set for its 36th year.

The Orwell & District Horticultural Society's annual show will be taking place on Saturday, August 19.

Show spokesman Sue Miller said the event had survived due to the loyalty of "old hands" with the help of a team of young enthusiasts.

She said other shows around the area had "gone by the wayside" due to a lack of support.

This year's event will include such activities as a dog show and displays of heavy horses and vintage tractors, and a pannier market.

Visitors, too, will have the opportunity to test their skills at archery.

The main attraction, however, remains the displays of flowers along with home baking and handicrafts on display in the marquee.

The event, at the Orwell Recreation Ground, will open at noon and will cost £2 (adults) and £1 (senior citizens and children). A family ticket is £5.
