Show success despite the cold

DESPITE the chill in the air, a spring flower show in Clevedon proved an outstanding success.
This was the 55th annual show for Clevedon Gardeners’ Club, which was held at the community centre in Princes Road.
A large number of people braved the elements to attend the show and be met by a sea of colour created by impressive displays of snowdrops, daffodils, crocus, hyacinths, iris and hellebores.
The number of exhibitors exceeded last year’s figures meaning there was an array of entries for the classes which included baking, preserves, arts and crafts, photography, and numerous horticultural categories.
