Higham Parish Council
2016 GARDENS FOR PLEASURE COMPETITION

 [ Back to: Home page | News ]

 

This is an annual competition organised by HIGHAM PARISH COUNCIL and judged on our behalf by horticultural officers from GRAVESHAM BOROUGH COUNCIL.   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.

This year marks the thirty-second anniversary of the competition. The following prizewinners will receive their awards from the Chairman of Higham Parish Council, at a presentation before the Parish Council Meeting to be held on Monday, 10th October 2016.

(Above) The garden of Gary Stowers, 42 St. Johns Road, Higham is the 2016 overall winner.  This year marks the thirty-second anniversary of the competition.
