Residents at the Anchor Trust complex on West Street, along with their friends and families, were invited to compete in more than 20 categories – including an animal made from a fruit or vegetable.

There was an excellent turnout - over 100 entries - and everyone enjoyed the day.

There were three wins for Jeanette Bell and two wins apiece for Brian Shotton, Marion Dunn and Margaret Britton.

Anne Forbes, scheme manager, added: “We would like to thank Tony Berlino and Michael Richardson for judging and presenting the prizes.”
