‘Outstanding’ flowers and vegetables were on display at Banwell Horticultural Show.

Banwellians turned out in numbers despite the inclement weather, making the show a big success.

The top gardener was Barry Taylor, who walked away with four trophies after accumulating the most points.

Banwell Gardening Club chairman Thomas Couch said: “Once again Banwell gardeners pulled out all the stops for the horticultural show. The number of entries was up on last year, and the entries were outstanding.

“The weather in the morning was not so good but it held off for the afternoon, giving the people of Banwell the chance to look around and they did. Thank you to all that turned out.”

Mr Couch paid tribute to show secretary Lyn Ralph, whose ‘hard work made the show a success’.
