The following report has been sent to the local media:

A summer harvest of flowers, fruit and veg from the greater Garstang area was on display at Cabus village hall on Saturday as Garstang and District Gardening Club held its summer show.

Scores of blooms and impressive horticultural specimens , along with cakes and jams and photographs of glorious gardens were up for judging by experts in their relevant fields.

Overall winner with the most points was popular grower Richard Kellet, a veteran gardener who is no stranger to trophies and other honours.

Richard took away several trophies, plaques and medals from the show, which this year was organised for the first time by Garstang Gardening Club chairman Roger Broadbelt.

After the prize presentations, made by club founder and president Ben Andrews, Mr Broadbelt paid tribute to the various club members who had assisted in setting up and running the show, and thanked the judges for their efforts.
