RAMSBOTTOM was in bloom when the town’s horticultural society held its summer show.
Among the winners were Tony Bracegirdle, who took home the Premier Cup; Ian Sutherland, whose basket of dahlias were recognised; and Gary Pemberton, who scooped the master gardener prize for his selection of flowers and vegetables.
Keith McCarren, secretary of Ramsbottom Horticultural Society, said: “Whenever the weather is nice, you get a lot of people at the show and it was really well attended this year.”
In the junior category, Cerys Pemberton, Mr Pemberton’s granddaughter, swept the board and won a number of prizes.
Mr McCarren said: “Usually young people tend not to be interested, but we had seven or eight young people.
“It is better when you get them there because all us old fellas are dying out.
“We need someone to replace us!”
