Front Garden Competition winners are announced

Green-fingered Knutsford residents showed even the smallest of gardens can impress the judges during Knutsford Town Council’s front garden competition.

All shapes and sizes of green spaces were entered into community contest, judged by the Mayor of Knutsford, Cllr Peter Coan, Bijal Mistry, manager of Fryer’s Garden Centre and Yvonne Bancroft, chair of Knutsford in Bloom.

With a cherry tree in full fruit, beautiful hanging baskets, lighting, bird feeders and baths and a small seating area, judges were in complete agreement that Peter Holt’s garden in Middle Walk was the winning entry.

A strong second place went to Susan Edwards and Richard Ankers in Lilac Avenue who had created a modern design with slate and wooden sleepers, impressing judges with their colour schemes, design, bird feeders and range of planting which was buzzing with bees.

Gina Cross won third place with her spectacular hanging baskets and potted displays outside her first floor flat in Middle Walk which, alongside Peter’s garden, make a wonderful floral walk down Middle Walk to the Moor.

Cllr Pete Coan said, ‘’It is absolutely wonderful that the local residents take such a pride in making Knutsford look lovely and there were so many gardens to judge, it was difficult to choose a winner.  however, pride of place has to be given to Peter for his wonderful all year-round display. His garden was absolutely outstanding, and I hope it gives as much pleasure to passers-by as it did for me to judge’’

The Mayor presented winners with a certificates and gift vouchers which were kindly donated by Fryer’s Garden Centre.

Front Garden Competition Launched

With the RHS Tatton flower show fast approaching and the North West in Bloom judges coming to town in July, Knutsford Town Council is launching a ‘Front Garden Competition’. The Council is asking for members of the public to come forward with nominations of gardens which have caught their eye and brightened their day, perhaps on their daily commute to work, on the way to the shops, or from a window at home or work. 

Nominations can be any garden which is on view to members of the public and can include anything from window boxes to larger landscaped gardens. Depending on the number of entries, the entries will be categorised, and judges will tour the finalists in July to select the winners, who will receive a prize donated by Fryer’s Garden Centre.

To submit an entry to the competition, please send a photo of the garden and its address along with your details to sarah.morgan@knutsfordtowncouncil.gov.uk by Friday 20th July. Entries may also be submitted directly to the Council Offices on Toft Road.
