AVID gardeners were in attendance at a produce show in Trowbridge last weekend, as competitors aimed to be named Best In Show.

More than 80 people were at the 16th Gloucester Road Allotment Show on Saturday, which saw tables full with local fruit, vegetables and more.

Prize winners were thrilled to come out on top and were as follows: Eva Hounsell, the overall winner of the fruit and vegetable classes, Fran Greenwood won Best In Show for her 6 tomatoes, and the Good family made a clean sweep in the cookery section, winning the most points prize and Best In Show for their cake made of fruit.

Another worthy winner was Margaret Wildman who managed to pull the most potatoes from one plant, with an impressive 14.5 pounds of spuds harvested.

Brian and Jan Messam were the judges for the fruit and vegetable classes while Sarah Marsh and Dinah Starkey chose the winners of the domestic classes.

Organiser, Valerie Fahey, was thrilled with how the show went and said it was 'excellent'.

She said: "The whole day was excellent really.

"Things looked slow right at the beginning and I was worried we wouldn't get many entries but then it started to pick up around midday and all of the tables became nice and full.

"We usually cater for 80 people and I'm sure we had that many this year too.

"At the moment we are currently looking for someone to use one of the raised beds we have in the allotment, it's suitable for any keen gardeners who are disabled. If you're interested call me on 01225 760636."

There was also a barbecue, cream teas, and a tombola at an event, making it about more than just vegetables.

The Wiltshire Wildlife Trust were also set up with a stall so they could discuss the work they are doing around Trowbridge with people who visited.

The Gloucester Road Allotments have 75 plots with around 65 active members.
