There was lots of green-fingered talent on show at an annual show on Saturday.

The Annual Vegetable and Flower Show hosted by the Leek Allotment Holders' and Gardeners' Association was held at St Paul's Community Centre in Novi Lane, Leek.

There was a colourful and tasty array of flowers and vegetables, which had been tended to by allotment holders, gardeners and school children.

Chairman of Leek Allotment Holders and Gardeners Association, Harold Critchlow, said: "This year's show went very well.

"Considering Spring was rather late this year, it was amazing how many entries we had for the show.

"In my opinion the quality of vegetables and flowers was as good as ever.

"There was also a good turnout of people coming through the doors to take a look around, and all vegetables and flowers were sold at the end of the event."

Harold, who has been attending the Annual Vegetable and Flower Show hosted by the association himself for 20 years, added: "The show used to be just for allotment holders and has been running since the Second World War.

"It was decided to change the name of the event to include gardeners so that everyone who wanted to be involved could be.

"I think there are a lot more people growing their own flowers and vegetables now, and we also have the schools involved in the show which is great as children like a challenge."
