Despite challenging weathers in the past 12 months, there were impressive exhibits at Clitheroe's annual garden club show.

Held at St James' Primary School, the show was well supported with over 300 entries and raised money for a life-saving charity too.

It was a very colourful display ranging from dahlias and gladdioli to tomatoes and onions, as well as classes for cakes preserves, textiles art and craft and photography.

The trophies were presented by Mr David Shackleton, from Shackletons Garden Centre.

Refreshments were served by members of the club, followed by an auction of donated produce which raised £60, which will be handed over to the school.

A plant and flower stall raised £98 for the North West Air Ambulance.
