Green-fingered gardeners and growers from across the Borough were celebrating the fruits of their labour recently at the annual Woking in Bloom and Allotment Awards, held at H.G Wells Conference and Events Centre, with Knaphill once again figuring among the top prizewinners.
The cream of the gardening crop received their prizes at a special presentation evening, attended by the Mayor of Woking, Cllr Anne Murray. Prizes for the winners and runners-up included garden centre gift tokens and trophies.
Woking Borough Council would like to thank sponsors Squires Garden Centre, Serco and Lansbury Business Estate for their continued support of the Woking in Bloom competition.
