Residents and staff at Winash, in Albert Road, had already started planning some of their entries, when the occasion was cancelled due to Covid-19, so they decided to hold their own.

Personal assistant, Sam Harding, said: “The residents worked hard over the past few months to create masterpieces for the show including growing their own veg; producing artwork, tie dying, pebble paint, poetry writing and cake making.

“Staff worked alongside residents to create some truly amazing pieces – some people finding talents they didn’t know they possessed.”

Official prize cards for the event were donated by Clevedon Flower Show, helping to create an even more authentic look for the show.
