Housing’s Garden Competition
Three prize presentations were held last week after green fingered tenants took part in a garden competition run by Housing and United Living.
Housing invited tenants and leaseholders to enter a Garden Competition, which was featured in the Spring edition of the Tenant and Leaseholder Matters. They were asked to enter photos of their own garden or outdoor space, or were nominated by a neighbour or relative who they felt deserved recognition for their efforts.
The three categories were Best Individual Garden, Best Small Container Display Best Communal Garden. Residents who are involved in involvement groups were asked to help judge the entries, and travelled out with a Housing Officer to look at the individual gardens and spaces.
The following winners were chosen:
- Best Individual Garden – Mrs Elliot, Ewe Lamb Close
- Best Small Container Display – Mrs Ward, Regency Court
- Best Communal Garden – Grove Court, Retirement Living scheme
There were two prizes for each category of National Garden Centre Vouchers and a gardening hamper, and each winner was presented with a personalised certificate. United Living sponsored the competition, and Chris Harrison from United Living attended along with the residents to present the prizes.
Richard Baker, Regional Director of United Living said: "United Living are happy to support the local community of Broxtowe; good things happen when we all pull together. The tenants and leaseholders have worked hard on their gardens and should be very proud of what has been achieved".
