THE BBC Radio Ulster Gardeners’ Corner team were at Sentry Hill near Glengormley last week to record a special programme.

A panel of green-fingered experts fielded questions from an audience of local gardening enthusiasts and allotment holders.

There was a great turnout at the historic farmhouse on the Ballycraigy Road for the recording of the programme last Tuesday evening (December 6). Among those who attended were several Sentry Hill allotment holders, representatives from local gardening societies and flower arranging clubs, and Newtownabbey Mayor Billy Webb.

The programme will be broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster on Saturday, December 17 after the 9am news.
