Ten-year-old Hazel Potter is celebrating success at the Burley Gardeners’ Association Annual Flower and Produce Show.
Hazel, of Willow Tree Gardens, Burley-in-Wharfedale, won two trophies, including jointly winning the overall Burley Show Trophy, which has not been won by a junior entrant since 1993.
She shared the trophy for the most points won with Angus Macintosh. She also won the trophy for the junior entrant.
Her mum Heather said: “We think this is the first time a junior has ever won both these awards at the show.
“She got first place in the junior classes for a handwritten and illustrated poem, six home-made decorated biscuits, a card for Christmas and a necklace made from unusual materials with second place for flowers in an unusual container, (which was plumbing pipes) and third place for a vegetable vehicle.”
