Les Hunter has made history by becoming the first Barnsley man to be named a national champion chrysanthemum grower. The 74-year-old has been growing them for 49 years and he was excited to be named as champion by the National Chrysanthemum Society at a competition in Stafford.

It took Mr Hunter a year to prepare for the individual champion class, putting in hours of tender loving care since November last year to make sure his flowers were in tip top shape for the competition.

"There is no prize money or anything like that, it's purely for the prestige you get in the flower world. I've entered it before but only came third and fourth, and no-one in Barnsley has ever won before," he said.

Les had to take about 30 flowers down with him to the competition, which is held in a huge barn. He arranged the flowers in four vases.

"I'm quite a small grower compared to most," said Mr Hunter, a former miner. "A lot of people will grow thousands and thousands of flowers a year but I don't grow a lot; I've got about 80 altogether in the garden. I started growing flowers because I used to be a miner and in those days that is what you did: you either went to the pub or went to the garden. You can see what I chose to do. I love it and I'm addicted. Every year I say I'll give it up but I never do."
