2019 Tenant Garden Competition


Bev Anderson, Tenant Participation Assistant


Are you proud of your garden, then why don’t you enter today?  See enclosed entry form


Whether you have a big garden, a vegetable patch or just a few pots, get digging for your chance to win a prize. Our annual garden competition is open to all tenants of all ages. There are ten categories for you to choose.


For each category, there will be gold, silver and bronze winners. Try to win our top prize of £75. The judges may decide to re-categorise your garden at time of the visit, if they feel you would do better under a different category.


The closing date for entries is Monday 24 June 2019. The judging will take place on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 July. The prize giving event will be held on Tuesday 6th August.
