A GARDENING club’s Spring show proved a feast for the eyes.

Slimbridge Gardening Club’s annual Spring Show, held on Saturday, March 28, was a great success, with fresh flowers gifting the eyes and noses of those in attendance.

The day was enjoyed by all those present and the competition fierce amongst all those members facing scrutiny from the judges.

The club’s chairwoman Carole Jeffes did extremely well at the show, getting the most points of anyone and earning herself a cup for her performance in the flower arranging and flower and vegetable sections.

Jill Tait entered some beautiful and skilled work in the handicrafts section and the judge considered her crocheted blanket the best exhibit in that part of the competition.

Also worthy of note was John Mace's Truck and Trailer, which he made from a kit while recovering from Knee surgery.

Siblings Daisy and Henry Gothard won the children's senior and junior cups.

Meetings of the gardening club are usually with a guest speaker, held on the second Tuesday of the month from September through to May at Slimbridge Village Hall from 7.30pm. There is a visitor's charge of £3 which includes light refreshments. Full membership is £10 per household per year.
