BEAUTIFUL blooms were on display at an annual event at the weekend.

Worle Century Club held its flower show and despite the recent bad weather, plenty of fine floral creations were entered.

First-time winner in the begonia class was show secretary Richard Knowles with his multi-stemmed flower. He won the Ray Cliff Begonia Cup.

There was also a lot of competition over who had grown the biggest carrot with amazing creations up to 14ins long and 3ins wide.

Later in the evening some of the entries were auctioned off to raise £115 for the club's charity fund. There was also a competition to guess the year a marrow had been harvested. That raised £120 for Worle Community School pupil Adam Martin, who needs to travel to America for cancer treatment.

Other winners included: NV Silver Medal: Joe Thomas, Century Points Cup: Geoff Haines, Tom Edwards Rose Bowl: John Robbins, The Galdioli Cup: Joe Thomas, The Century Cup: Rob Kerton, Dolly Pitt Memorial Cup: John Robbins, Stan Smith Shield: John Robbins, Tony Pitt Trophy: Joe Thomas, The George Bisdee Memorial Trophy: Ann Bradley and Rose Weadon Memorial Trophy: Joyce Tucker.
