IT was a busy weekend in the Clun Valley.
The Newcastle-on-Clun and District Garden and Produce Show attracted a wide selection of exhibits. As well as many blooms and impressive fruits and vegetables, the show also had a number of special classes.
These included a scarecrow competition with depictions of The Vicar of Dible y and Herefordshire-based TV gardener Monty Don among the exhibits to frighten away the birds.
Youngsters had the chance to find out more about the aquatic life of the River Clun and listen to live music from James and Cerys Batten from Ceri who are part of the Amp for Music project based in Bishops Castle.
There was a Book Fair at St George’s Church in Clun to help raise funds for the building.
A church was recorded on the present site in Saxon times and the present St George’s was largely rebuilt in 1877.
