THE multi-talented people of Old Windsor showed what they are capable at the annual horticultural show on Saturday.

The 82nd Old Windsor Handicraft, Produce and Horticultural Society Show had the usual range of beautiful flower arrangements for visitors to enjoy in the Memorial Hall, Straight Road.

But many had their eye caught by the elegant needlework of Nita Glennister, who won the silver vase in the adult art and craft section of the show for her image created in cross stitch of a woman in a beautiful gown.

Cross stitch is a particularly intricate and challenging form of needlework.

In the craft section of the show the work on display was also top notch.

Show secretary Valerie Snapes said: "Several people who had work on display were approached by people who wanted to buy it."

Mrs Snapes said: "There was a good turn-out at the show and the junior entries were up which bodes well for the future.

"What was really noticeable was the increase in art entries over the last two years as more classes spring up. People who have retired are discovering hidden talents and it is wonderful to give them a chance to share that talent with the community."

Royal Borough deputy mayor Cllr Colin Rayner came along to present the prizes
