“They’re a rare breed called golden Guernsey which have been on Countryfile.”
Community games and activities for children including a space hopper race and football goal scoring competition were organised by Somerset Activity Sports Partnership.
The classic car display increased from three cars last year, to twenty three cars and three vintage lorries this year thanks to committee member Roger French.
Mr Lindsay said: “In the past one or two people have turned up in classic cars but this year one chap who’s on the committee and has two classic cars did a lot of hard work going tound classic car goupr and got a fantastic response.”
Top local growers from The National Garden Show, based in Shepton Mallet, returned to enter fruit, flowers and vegetables in the traditional marquee.
Wine, jams, cakes, crafts, photography and art were on display, and Michael Boyer, an international Flora Art judge, declared the Floral Art to be of an exceptionally high standard for a local show.
Mr Lindsay said: “It was a good, successful show, but we would like a lot more entries in the children’s sections to keep it running.”
The show committee is holding a craft fair to raise funds for next year’s event in the village hall on November 16 from 9.30am.
