A Leyland gardening group came up smelling of roses after their latest flower show.

Leyland Gardening Society held their annual rose show at Balshaws CE High School and saw over 70 people turn out to enter their prized plants into different categories.

Exhibits included roses, fuscias and cactus.

Secretary Derek Westall said: “There were lots of different categories and flowers are obviously the main thing but we also had other categories such as photography.

“It was really well attended and everyone involved had a lovely day.”

The society now has over 70 members and the next meeting of the group will be on August 27 at St Ambrose Church Hall.
