Green fingered residents encouraged to enter gardening competition

We are running our annual event to reward those residents who have shown green fingered know-how in their gardens.

The awards will celebrate winners in a number of categories :

  • Best front garden
  • Best rear garden
  • Best containers and hanging baskets
  • Best communal garden
  • Most improved garden
  • Champion of champions

Clare Jackson, our Executive Director Housing Care and Communities said : “We are delighted to announce this year’s gardening competition.  The quality of entrants is always outstanding and our judges have a tough job in making their decisions.”

She continued : “Here at Fortis we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and this was partially behind the instigation of our gardening competition.  Encouraging people to take part in such initiatives not only celebrates the great outdoors but also has a positive effect on health and well-being.  We look forward to receiving applications!”

Winners in each category will receive £100 each in gardening vouchers.

The closing date for this year’s event is Monday 24 June, with the judging taking place on Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 July.  Winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony later in the year.
