GREEN SHOOTS: The economy may not be growing, but Huntingdonshire's love of gardening shows no sign of abating.
Hemingford Grey Gardeners' Society, which held its annual show on Saturday, has grown so much that it is set to have to be up-rooted for the second time.
New chairman, Tish Page told The Hunts Post: "We saw quite a lot of youngsters at the show. Our retiring chairman Liz Bishop and other members have been showing children in our primary school how to grow things and we have been encouraging greater interest in gardening and it was lovely that children came along with their parents to the show.
"Our society is flourishing. We used to meet in the village reading rooms but we got too big for there. We now meet at the Parish Rooms but we might have to move into the Pavilion where the show was. Gardening is a growing attraction."
The overall cup for the most points in the show was won by Mrs Bishop who is stepping down as chairman so that she can spend more time visiting her children in the United States.
