Congresbury Gardening Club held its spring flower show at the Old School Rooms.

Congresbury’s green-fingered villagers defied bouts of heavy snowfall to enter top-quality exhibits.

The show’s big winners were Judy Brook and Denise Smith, who claimed two cups each – and Pat Jarvis walked away with the coveted Daffodil Cup.

Chloe Chetland was the star of the children’s categories, winning a pair of prizes.
