Higham Parish Council

GARDENS FOR PLEASURE COMPETITION 2015

 [ Back to: Home page | News ]

 

This is an annual competition organised by HIGHAM PARISH COUNCIL and judged on our behalf by Mr Morton Grey, retired local government horticultural expert.   There are no entry forms for parishioners to complete as every front garden in the village is considered when the judges tour the Parish looking for gardens that give the passer-by the most visual pleasure.  In reaching a final decision the judges award points for colour, choice of plants and cultivation, and the overall design of the garden.

(Above) The garden of June and Anthony Stevenson, 3, Hayes Close, Higham is the 2015 overall winner.  This year marks the thirty-first anniversary of the competition.
