LOSSIEMOUTH Town Hall was filled with vibrant colours and the scent of fresh blooms on Saturday as the town's flower and produce show made a triumphant return.

The event, organised by the Lossiemouth Flower Show Society, had been paused for the last three years and the group were delighted to receive support from visitors, exhibitors and volunteers at this year's event.

Flower Show Society secretary, Frances Reddy, said: "The show was resumed after a gap of three years due to Covid and then the loss of our venue, so we were quite anxious about how it would regenerate, but the committee were delighted that most of our former competitors exhibited again.

"The horticultural entries were of a very high standard and filled the hall with lots of colour and handicrafts section was also of a very high standard and we had a very varied selection of crafts."

The group were also thrilled to see members of the public come along to support the show.

Frances said: "The public came in great numbers and were all delighted. We were quite heartened by it and intend to continue and hope to see even greater success next year."

The flower show society has also thanked the Lossiemouth Men's Shed, who helped to set up and take down the event, along the sponsors of the show.
