Entries were at record levels for this year's Helston Harvest Fair Horticultural and Craft Show held on Sunday.

The Old Cattle Market at Coronation Park was filled with exhibits ranging from flowers, vegetables and fruit to cookery, handicrafts, floral art and photography, with the children's section also attracting many more entries than in previous years.

Entries overall were up by almost 50 per cent, rising from around 500 to the 750 mark.

This year saw a new trophy being presented for the best exhibit in the main photography section, in memory of Helston photographer Keith Richards who died in July. After being presented the cup by Keith's partner Elis Hallam, winner Andrew Songhurst said he was "honoured" to become the first recipient.

Cups and shields were also presented for the best exhibits and most points won in all other sections, ranging from flowers to fruit and cookery to floral art, with the children's section also attracting many more entries than in previous years.

Winner of best exhibit in the show was Marion Prout for her patchwork quilt, made in memory of her parents, while Tom Christophers won trophies for most points in the show and most prize cards.

Joint show organiser John Boase thanked everyone who had entered and helped make it one of the most successful shows ever.
