Villagers turned out in numbers to support the event, which was officially opened by Fylde mayor Elaine Silverwood and there was a colourful array of produce on show, thanks to 670 individual entries in a wide variety of categories, from jam making to growing vegetables, along with some 600 school entries for skills such as handwriting.

Show secretary Pauline Mitchell said: "It was a really successful day and it was great to see so many faces who turned out to support their local show.

"There were a lot of new faces that entered for the first time and several of them won trophies."
