STAN Shepherd won the most points at the recent Axminster Allotment and Leisure Gardeners' Association show.

Mr Shepherd scored 18 points in the show, having picked up a number of trophies for the individual classes at the event, held on Saturday, August 15.

In second place overall was Brian Enticott, with 14 points and third was Andrew Coley, with seven.

The show has been going from strength-to-strength over the last few years, with more produce entered each time, giving the judges a more difficult task to choose the winners.

The event was held at the Church Rooms, in Axminster, with all the produce displayed in a marquee, which was erected for the occasion.
