The event, on Sunday, at the Royal Hotel, attracted 135 entries into the different categories from 46 competitors.

Barbara Ramwell, Chairman of the Gardening Club, said: “For our first attempt we were really pleased how many entrants we had and how many people came to look around.

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in any way.”
