Haworth's popular summer flower and vegetable show has been cancelled this year.

The Haworth and District Gardeners Show were due to hold their 102nd annual flower, vegetable and produce show on August 30.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the volunteer committee took the decision to safeguard anyone involved with the running of the show, including exhibitors, judges and helpers on the day.

A spokesman said: "We will be back next year as good as ever."

At last year's show, almost 500 exhibits were on display. Haworth Village Hall was filled with vegetables, produce and handicrafts, while flowers were displayed in a marquee.

Due to the wet summer some of the flower and vegetable classes were slightly down on exhibits, but organisers still described the turnout as "excellent".

A spokesman said: "The hall was buzzing with a steady stream of visitors, exhibitors wanting to know what the judges thought of their entries and members of the public looking at the wonderful things that all the skilled and talented people had exhibited.

The event raised £526 for Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands, through an auction of exhibits, unclaimed prize money and a cake and plant stall, which had been staged in Haworth several weeks earlier.
