2020 Tenant Garden Competition

2020 Garden Competition Results

Once again, the tenants of East Devon District Council have excelled themselves during this difficult year with a beautiful display of gardens. There were 22 entries this year, not as many as usual due to it being digital entries only. Kieron Bewes (Horticultural Consultant) was the judge and using the Royal Horticultural Society judging method. There were 11 gold prizes, six Silver and five Bronze.

The Tenants’ Garden Competition is an annual event organised by Bev Anderson, Tenant Participation Assistant within the Housing Service at East Devon District Council.

The winners received their prizes and certificates through the post due to Covid-19 as we were unable to provide a prize giving event this year.

Commenting on this year’s tenants’ gardening competition Cllr Megan Armstrong, East Devon District Council’s portfolio holder for Sustainable Homes and Communities, said:

‘‘it’s wonderful that the Tenants’ Garden Competition has gone ahead again this year, despite the difficulties we have all faced with the Covid-19 situation. Although there were fewer entries than usual, which is quite understandable, I would like to congratulate everyone who entered and won a prize. I hope that next year we will be able to have the usual garden competition with many more participants when I will once again be able to meet everyone in person at the prize giving day. Meanwhile well done to all concerned!

Last year's results can be found in Housing Matters Winter 2020 edition.
