Newly-elected Member of Parliament for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford was the judge of Cruden Bay Horticultural Society's annual best kept garden contest.
The MP visited the gardens with local councillor Stephen Smith and Cruden Bay Horticultural Society members Kathleen Morrison and Betty Forrester and the winners will be announced at the society's annual flower show, being held tomorrow (Saturday) in St James's Church, Cruden.
Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford MP said:
"Many of those we visited also lend a hand in maintaining some of the floral tubs and displays around the village so Cruden Bay is clearly home to some very green-fingered individuals.
"The Horticultural Society is to be congratulated for the work it does not only in organising the flower show and the competition but also for their work on the floral displays around the village which help to brighten it up."
