Longcroft's green-fingered residents blossom with a gardening competition

Longcroft's green-fingered residents blossom with a gardening competition

This summer the Longcroft Social Committee held a gardening competition for residents of the sheltered scheme and the surrounding area.

The committee wanted to promote the beautiful gardens of some of the local residents, as well as encouraging a flourishing sense of healthy competition within the local area. The competition was £1 to enter, with the money contributing to the prize pot.

There were 2 categories to enter, one for the best garden on the estate and the other for the best balcony. These were chosen to allow all residents to take part, whether they lived in a house or a flat. balc

Keen competition meant that gardens all around the area were blooming, which brightened up the area and added a splash of summer colour – but eventually two gardens proved to be outstanding!

The winners of a £10 B&Q voucher were:

Best Garden – Dot Mellors (above)

Best Balcony – Michael and Jackie Hill (right) 

Congratulations to both winners!
