The Golden Gardens plot encompasses the work of a group of volunteers led by Mr Jim Robinson who grow a whole variety of vegetables from tomatoes to spring onions.

Education is key too and the team also help other community groups including children from the nearby St Mary’s Church pre school, showing them how to plant seeds and grow their own produce.

Jim said: “I’m over the moon, it’s the second year on the trot that we’ve won.

“We’ve got a dedicated group of volunteers who work very hard up there. Myself and my partner are up there seven days a week.”

And as well as Jim and his team judges also gave special mention to runners up Colin Thorman also of Goldington and Anne Doody of Bedford.
