Green-fingered residents have been honoured in Amble’s Annual Garden Awards for their bloomin’ good work.

The Alnwick Garden provided the judge, Robbie Pendrich, who was escorted around the area’s wards by town councillors.

Allotments were judged by the Amble Allotment Holders’ Society.

The shortlist, nominated by members of the public and ward councillors, produced a large number of gardens to see and the standard was high.

This year’s event saw a new Secret Garden category added. The award ceremony was held last month.
