GREEN-fingered members of Calderdale Substance Misuse Service scooped a silver award with their entry into the Harrogate Flower Show.

Called Contour, their garden border portrayed the transformational journey from addiction to recovery - starting with a weed-infested wasteland and blossoming into a beautiful garden. The team’s prize-winning garden will be at the autumn Harrogate Flower Show until September 18.

The new medal competition for garden borders was launched to celebrate the 2011 centenary of the show organisers North of England Horticultural Society.
