Higham Parish Council
GARDENS FOR PLEASURE COMPETITION 2018

 [ 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-fourth anniversary of the competition. The following prizewinners received their awards from the Deputy Mayor of Gravesham, Cllr Lesley Boycott at a presentation on Monday, 26th November 2018 in Higham Library.
