As we begin to see more sunshine (although as I write this, it has been raining for days and is forecast to continue!) and the days grow longer, it’s time to remind you about the competitions running this summer in Ruddington.
The BEST KEPT VILLAGE COMPETITION depends on the co-operation of all residents and businesses to help keep the village tidy and well cared for. The Parish Council ground staff do their best to keep open spaces maintained but it is often the carelessly discarded crisp bags or pop cans that give the wrong impression. Judging for Round 1 will take place between 4th and 21st June.
Also being launched this month is the Parish Council’s ‘PHOTOGRAPHIC’ GARDEN COMPETITION which started in 2011 and was a huge success. You can enter any time from May to the end of September – just take a picture of your garden at its best or during a particularly interesting stage and send it in with an entry form. (Pictured – Last year’s winning entry of the Photographic Competition taken by Mr P Brown)
And for those keen gardeners among you, keep up your planning and planting ready for the judging of the ANNUAL GARDEN COMPETITION in July. Entry forms and full details for both the Garden and the Photographic competitions will be available
either from St. Peter’s Rooms or click here to download.
Finally, to all allotment holders in the village, the ALLOTMENTS COMPETITION will be judged in July and you are automatically entered unless you ask not to be. Notices will be supplied for display at the allotments in the weeks leading up to judging so keep your eyes open.
