There was a children’s class with first, second and third all receiving artists hampers with everything they need to get creative. Cameron Campbell took first prize for his inventive painting of a conker.

The winner of the adults class received a £25 garden centre voucher.

The canvases were auctioned on Saturday, October 31, raising £75 for Canine Partners.

The garden centre thanks all those who entered and looks forward to seeing next year’s creations. Cameron is pictured with his prize and conker picture.
