Thank you and well done to everyone who entered our 2023 Gardening Competition.
The competition judges included our Environmental Champions and Jane, our tenant gardening guru.
Despite the unsettled weather ranging from deluge to drought, it was an overall excellent show by all our gardeners. There were very colourful displays and a great variety of plants, demonstrating lots of hard work. Well done to everyone.
