Congresbury Gardening Club hosted its autumn show at the Old School Rooms on September 29, as villagers showed off the fruits of their labour from the late summer.

Vegetables, flowers and cakes were among the wide range of exhibits entered for judging.

Bill Maggs was one of the big winners on the day, taking home the best exhibit prizes in the vegetable and flower classes.

John Chaplin’s huge parsnips caught the eyes of the judges, and Dawn Odoi’s selection of vegetables saw her scoop several awards.
