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.
