COLOURFUL displays of geraniums were blooming at a Wisbech centre on Saturday when the British and European Geranium Society held their national show.

It was the first time in its 36-year history that the show, hosted by the Wisbech and District Fuchsia and Pelargonium Society, had taken place in Fenland.

Between 300 and 400 people looked at the displays in the Queen Mary Centre, in Queen's Road, which included displays of geraniums and pelargoniums by exhibitors from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and further afield.

There were also trade stands, plants for sale, a raffle and a book stall held by the geranium society.
