GARDENERS of all ages were honoured at the Royston in Bloom awards.
Royston's mayor, Cllr Rod Kennedy, presented trophies, sponsored by The Crow, to the winners in the eight categories.
Angela Louch, Royston in Bloom chairman, said: "It was a marvellous evening, and what I found particularly heartening was the range of ages represented.
"We had youngsters of three or four right through to 90-year old pensioners, so it really bodes well for the future of gardening in Royston."
