A taste of the Wild West rolled in Fenland during a gardening club’s annual barbecue.

Newton Gardening Club members swapped their wellies for cowboy hats and Indian headdresses for the popular barbecue.

A total of 87 people went along to the home of Doug and Wendy Fullbrook to enjoy the annual event, which had a traditional wagon.

King’s Lynn Town Band ensured the event got off to the right note by playing some appropriate Western music.

The afternoon included a fancy dress contest. Winners were: best cowboy – Ken Sherry; best cowgirl – Rachel Bell; best Indian – Doug Fullbrook; best Indian squaw – Hilary Perry.

Members’ gardening talents were not totally given a rest as the afternoon also included the Hang ’Em High hanging basket competition. This was won by Cathie and Gerry Aitken.

Members also enjoyed games of crouquet, boules and quoits.

Youngsters were also entertained by spacer hoppers.

A raffle, which raised more than £100 for club funds, was organised by Morris and Diane Arnold.

Mr Fullbrook ran the barbecue with Nigel Wakefield.

The hosts were again helped by Rachel and Tom Bell, Cat and Mike Lamb.
