Hundreds of green-fingered residents visited the annual Baxenden Allotments and Gardens Society Show.
The event, now in its 62nd year, was held at Hollins Technology College and exhibited the best locally grown fruit, vegetables and flowers, along with classes to improve residents’ skills.
Eddie Moorcroft won several trophies with his floral entries and five-year-old Luke Holmes won first prize for his edible necklace, the Hollins School Trophy for the most outstanding exhibit by a person aged 16 or under, and the Children’s Shield Infants for the Best Exhibit Children’s classes.
His mum Alison Holmes also won first prize and the Baxenden Allotments & Gardens Society plaque for the best exhibit in confectionery classes for her plate of home made and hand-decorated cakes.
Organiser Cath Holmes said: “It went very well and we had a very steady stream of visitors throughout the day.
“We were slightly down on exhibit numbers this year compared to previous years but that was due to the weather this year. Thankfully we had enough to put on a good show again. We had some fantastic displays and even an elephant made out of a cabbage and a parsnip.”
