THE colours of spring were brought to Clevedon on Saturday with the spring show of the town’s gardeners’ club.

The Princes Hall in Princes Road played host to the 53rd annual event, which attracted more than 220 visitors to browse the colourful entries.

Despite the cold winter, a surprising number of items were entered into the many classes, which included daffodils, camelias, potted plants, vegetables, fruit, crafts, photography and cookery.

The number of entrants was slightly up on last year and several new entrants won prizes.

Christine Jarvis achieved the most points in bulbous classes, Carol Raines triumphed in the garden material category, Rita Bolwell earned the most points in photography and Mrs Hemsley was victorious in cookery.
