Optimistic that this summer WILL be a good one for gardeners and garden lovers, the Parish Council is continuing with its Garden and ‘Photographic’ Competitions again this year.
With a change to its previous format, the Garden Competition is for ALL front gardens as viewed from the road, whether it features hanging baskets, pots and planters or flower beds, and there are more prizes with a 1st prize of £50, 2nd £25, 3rd £15 and 4th £10. The closing date has been extended to Wednesday 31st July.
The Garden ‘Photographic’ Competition is very popular as you can feature your front or back garden in the picture and you can take the picture when your display is at its best – anytime between 1st May and 31st August. Prizes of £25, £15 and £10 are awarded to the top three pictures.
Application forms (and rules) for both competitions can be picked up from St Peter’s Rooms or downloaded from the Ruddington Parish Council website under ‘Local News & Snippets’. All winners will be presented with their prizes and certificates at the Presentation Evening in the autumn.
