Hill village gardeners beat weather to win
GARDENERS in and around three hilltop villages in Stroud proved themselves undeterred by a record wet and mostly cool summer.
The residents of Eastcombe, Bussage and Brownshill showed off their gardening prowess at the 26th annual Hilltop Gardening Club show, spokesman Pip Dade said.
The event at Eastcombe Village Hall was opened by BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter Chris Baxter, who later presented trophies to category winners.
"The most points in show trophy went to Ruth Fraser, with Sheila Williams the winner of the coveted Banksian medal and four other trophies," said Mr Dade.
