Falmouth Packet

There was a World War One theme running through Porkellis Village Produce & Craft Show on Saturday.

The centenary of the outbreak of the war influenced many of the sections in the village's 35th annual show, with classes for knitted socks in handicraft, '1916 trench cake' in home produce, remembrance themed floral art, and poppies in the form of collages and paintings in the art and children's sections. A total of 707 entries were exhibited this year - slightly down on last year's "exceptional" numbers, largely due to a decrease in the vegetables and flowers being entered, but still around average for the show.
