A KALEIDOSCOPE of colour filled a school at Purbrook’s annual horticultural show.

Local gardeners and craft-makers had been hard at work over the last few months to make sure the show was a success.

And they didn’t disappoint.

Crookhorn College of Technology was filled with giant onions and leeks, home-made jam, preserves and cakes, and an array of floral arrangements.

Lynda Piddington, publicity officer for Purbrook Horticultural Society, said: ‘We had some beautiful fuchsia and some pansies as well.

‘The knitted items were very good this year.

‘There were a lot of younger members who had contributed this year and it was nice to see them coming up through the ranks.’
