Winner of the Best Edible Garden category

The winners of Six Town Housing’s annual gardening competition have been announced.

The ‘Flower Power’ competition is run for people living in homes managed by Six Town Housing on behalf of Bury Council, and others living in their communities.

The competition received over 80 entries from across the borough, for categories including Best Communal Garden, Best Edible Garden and Most Improved Garden.

Carol Lewis, the winner of the Best Individual Garden category in 2018, helped shortlist this year’s entries. She said, “I enjoy gardening myself, so it was great looking through all the entries. There were a wide variety and it was very difficult to choose just one winner in each category. Everyone should be proud of what they have achieved even if they did not win this time.”

Winner of the Communal Garden category

Sharon McCambridge, Chief Executive at Six Town Housing, said, “Our competition highlights the hard work of just some of the tenants, residents and groups who help make their neighbourhoods look amazing for the benefit of everyone living locally.”

Winners in each category received £100 in gardening vouchers, while runner-ups picked up a £25 voucher.
