Results Front Garden Competition 2019

Published: 06 August 2019

On 8th July, a beautiful day which showed all of the gardens off at their best, the judge, Mr Allan Rees, MBE walked, then rode his scooter around every street in the village and looked at every front garden. From this he made a shortlist and returned on 9th July to review them for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each of the categories.

Allan said that the general standard in the village is the best he has seen for some time. He enjoyed the variety that made comparing some gardens very difficult as they were of different types but equally of merit. In the end there were ties which reflect this. He split the pots and baskets category into two so went in search of the best pot and the best basket. One observation about the plants in the baskets was that many had not yet fully grown to cover the basket frame. Perhaps later judging or earlier planting will resolve this next year.

The results are as follows:
