A competitive event organised by the North East England Local Group of the Alpine Garden Society (AGS) attracted dozens of entries from Northumberland residents.
The Newcastle AGS Show took place at Cowell’s Garden Centre in Woolsington. As it is part of a national series, people from across the UK took part.
Woolsington is just a few miles from Ponteland and the participants from this area included Alan Newton, pictured above. He was runner-up in the Ponteland Bowl category (most first prize points in Open Section).
Ponteland resident Mala Janes is chairman of the North East group, which meets most months in St Mary’s Church Hall.
