Sorry about the predictable headline, but nevertheless visitors to the St Ives Corn Exchange had a great evening when the BBC radio 4 Gardeners Question time was recorded here in St Ives on the 1st May.

The BBC production team took over the Corn Exchange and recorded two shows to be broadcast on 17th May and 7th June.

The BBC was invited to St Ives by the Hill Rise Allotment Association and they hosted the event beautifully. On this occasion the GQT panel was chaired by Kathy Clugston (left) with panellists Christine Walkden, Anne Swithinbank and Bob Flowerdew. The panel answered lots of questions from an enthusiastic audience, but we have to wait until 3pm on the 17th to hear their answers.
