Annual show for gardeners is a success
A summer harvest of flowers, fruit and vegetables from the greater Garstang area was on display at Cabus village hall on Saturday as Garstang and District Gardening Club held its summer show.
Scores of blooms and impressive horticultural specimens – along with cakes, jams and photographs of glorious gardens – were up for judging by experts in their relevant fields.
Overall winner with the most points was popular grower Richard Kellet, a veteran gardener who is no stranger to trophies and other horticultural honours.
Richard took away several trophies, plaques and medals from the show, which this year was organised for the first time by Garstang Gardening Club chairman Roger Broadbelt.
After the prize presentations, made by club founder and president Ben Andrews, Mr Broadbelt paid tribute to the various club members who had assisted in setting up and running the show.
He also thanked the judges for their efforts at this year’s event.
The show’s organisers also thanked all who attended and helped make this year’s show another stunning success.
