People could enter homegrown vegetables, beautiful flowers and colourful creations in nearly 150 classes at the Long Ashton Flower Show on Saturday.

The event at the village community centre, in Keedwell Hill, attracted scores of visitors, and Long Ashton Horticultural Society's 94th show was hailed a huge success.

Gardeners were delighted to showcase their blooms after months of hard work.

Prize-winners included Cynthia Griffiths' seaside painting, Julia Peak's brightly-coloured mix of roses and Gabriella Carr's tropical Zanzibar gem plant.

Society chairman, Kate Anthony Wilkinson, said: "The show went very well.

"The money we raise from this event will go back into running it in the village next year."

The horticultural society's next flower show will be held on September 6, 2020.
