One of the best performers in the competition was Gomer Junior School, which took home five gold awards and the prize for Best School.

Headteacher Georgina Mulhall said: ‘I am immensely proud of what the students have achieved collectively.

‘Everyone at the school gets involved with the gardening projects and everyone is really enthusiastic about it.’

Speaking at the event, Mayor of Gosport Cllr Diane Furlong said: ‘It’s lovely to see so many of you here – and I think all of your gardens are very special places.’
