Entries are being finalised ahead of the 39th St Martin Craft and Horticultural Show next week.

This will take place in the barn at Trewince, St Martin on Saturday, August 23, with the show opened at 2.30pm by Derek and Susanne Carter.

Last year saw 100 exhibitors produce just over 1,000 entries. On the day more than 500 people gathered together, in perfect weather, which organisers say shows the importance of this type of event to local |communities.

Schedules are available from Newtown Garage, Mawgan Shop and The Old Withy Garden Nursery. Everyone is invited to enter, with new classes to choose from as well as old favourites. Particular emphasis has again been placed on the children's classes this year, with youngsters seen as the future of the show.

During the afternoon the Cober Valley Accordion Band will be entertaining visitors and the ladies of the village will be ensuring that tea and cakes are in plentiful supply.

There will also be a raffle, face painting and a charity sales table, with this year's proceeds going to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and Turn to Starboard.
