Green-fingered residents swapped peonies for prizes as the awards were handed out in this year’s Buxton in Bloom competition.

Following the successful revival of the popular horticultural contest by Buxton Town Team, a ceremony was held at the Pavilion Gardens on Sunday afternoon to present the winning entries with their cash prizes, plaques and certificates.
