A group of Oswestry's most relentless gardeners were able to show off their talents on Saturday, with the annual Gatacre Allotments show.

More than 350 entries were expertly laid out on display for judging at the Marches School, in Morda Road, with many triumphing over the adverse weather conditions throughout the summer.

Entries included anything from beautifully-produced flowers to your good old-fashioned potatoes and vegetables.

Mel Evans, chair of the show and has been in the same role for the Gatacre Allotments for the last six months, and was delighted hs to be at the show as the chairman and thanked all those for taking part.

"It's a bittersweet day for me but I am very to proud to be here,"  said Mel.

"The standard this year is pretty good, considering how much wet weather we've had this summer.

"There's not much difference in what people have grown but the weather over the last few months has had an impact.

"We've had about 350 entries for this year's competition. We usually get that, or in-between that and 400.

"We're happy with that because, again, of how bad the weather has been. I would obviously like to thank all the exhibitors and all the people who use the allotments."

A full results from the show will be published in The Advertizer in coming weeks.
