Clevedon Gardeners’ Club welcomed more than 350 people to the show on Saturday to bask in the splendour of colourful flowers, magnificent photos and delicious preserves.

There were more than 80 classes open to entrants, with only three restricted to members of the club.

Christine Jarvis won the prize for most points in the bulb section while Ros Mizen won the garden material section.

The Don Everitt Cup, awarded to the person with the most points across the two categories, went to Carol Raines, narrowly pipping Mary Blight to the prize who had been out picking her entries by torchlight after being away prior to the show.

The club hopes to target more of the younger generation with next year’s show.
