GREEN-FINGERED residents on Weston’s Bournville estate produced an array of colourful hanging baskets during a free event.

This is the first of a series of events which are taking place at the Chocolate Garden in Lonsdale Avenue over the coming months.

People tried their hands at flower and plant arranging, and took their hanging baskets home with them.

For more details on upcoming events at the Chocolate Garden ring Mary Morgan on 01934 426998.
