With the summer season just around the corner and plants and flowers starting to bloom in our gardens, now is a good time to remind you that there are opportunities to win prizes in the Parish Council Garden Competitions.
The ANNUAL GARDEN COMPETITION has two categories:
1) Window Boxes / Hanging Baskets / Planters and
2) Front Gardens (as seen from the road)
There is plenty of time to get your entries ready as judging will not take place until July.
Both competitions will be advertised around the village and entry forms along with guidelines will be available at St. Peter’s Rooms or online. For more information or two download an entry form for either of the above competitions, go to LOCAL NEWS & SNIPPETS, under the section Garden Competitions 2011.
BEST KEPT VILLAGE COMPETITION
Ruddington is entering the Best Kept Village Competition again this year – so any tidying or weeding that can be done to help our chances will be most welcome, especially since we are losing our Street Cleaner.
