One of the district’s best flower shows was another blooming success this year with a bumper crop of entries thanks to scorching summer.

The annual show by Polmont Horticultural Society was held in the village’s sports centre last Saturday where green-fingered enthusiasts showed off hundreds of prize exhibits.

M and M Muszynski scored the most points in the show for their quality vegetables picking up the Brown Ferguson Memorial Cup.

The brothers from Bridgend also won the John McLuckie Memorial Cup, John Maitland Memorial Cup and Joe Woods Memorial Trophy.

James Elliot from Fauldhouse was also a big winner picking up the Falkirk District Council Trophy, Lindsay Rose Bowl, Ian Alexander Trophy, Newlook Windows Trophy and Jennifer Mitchell Memorial Trophy for his cut flowers.

The society’s co-ordinator Janet Anderson was full of praise for all the entries.

She said: “It was another great year for our show and we were very pleased with all the amazing entries. The standard seems to get better every year and the growing season finished quite early this year due to the good summer.

“The dahlia’s this year were absolutely stunning and the exhibits in the handicrafts section were just beautiful. The entries from the children who took part were amazing as well. Well done to everyone for all their efforts.”
