Six Town Housing Launch Annual Gardening Competition

SIX Town Housing are inviting green-fingered residents to show off their gardening efforts in their annual competition.

The competition aims to celebrate the hard work of residents living in homes Six Town Housing manage across Bury.

The judges are looking for attractive gardens and impressive hanging baskets belonging to tenants, along with schools, youth clubs and community groups based within their neighbourhoods.

Winners of most categories will be awarded £100 in gardening vouchers, with the Best Young Gardener receiving a £50 toy or book voucher and gardening vouchers for their home or school.

Prizes will also be awarded for the following categories: Best Individual Garden, Best Pots, Baskets and Small Spaces, Best Communal Garden, Best Young Gardener (aged under 16), Best Eco-friendly Garden, Best Edible Garden and Community Gardeners.

Entrants must live in a property managed by Six Town Housing, and can nominate their own garden or those of others.

The competition will be judged by Tony Evason and Duncan Smith, who are both previous winners. Tony won best Communal Garden in 2016 with his neighbours, and Duncan won Most Improved Garden in 2017.

Last year’s competition received almost 160 entries.

The deadline for entries is Monday, July 9. To enter visit
