Sandford and District Gardening Club held its summer show on Saturday attracting a host of talented gardeners and crafters.

Gardeners showed off their prized blooms after months of watering and nurturing.

Judges had some tough decisions to make, before dishing out trophies to the most impressive entries.

Club secretary Janet Baker said: "The show was a great success with more than 200 entries, including some wonderful floral arrangements."
