A WELL known gardener and successful competitor at a village show will be putting on display in aid of a local charity.

Cecil Townsend who has had great success at the Dinas Powys Village Show will be displaying a number of pumpkins and giant vegetables outside the Three Horseshoes pub in the village centre on Friday, September 15 in support of Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern (DPVC)

DPVC is a local charity that provides transport, befriending and wellbeing services for the older residents who live in the Dinas Powys area.

The charity thanked Cecil for holding this colourful annual event once again.

A spokesman for the charity said: "The support that DPVC receives from Cecil and others in the community is greatly appreciated."

There is the chance to enter a competition to guess the weight of the vegetables, to give a donation at the display or donate to DPVC via Facebook or online at mydonate.bt.com/charities/dpvc.
