Best Kept Garden Competition

Do you have green fingers? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

Waldridge Parish Council runs an annual Best Kept Garden competition, which is split into five categories: Waldridge Park; Deneside View; Poppyfields; Front/Back Door Display; and Overall Winner. During the year, our Councillors are on the lookout for gardens that stand out, whether they be particularly tidy, very colourful, or unusual. If you would like to Council to specifically include your garden in the judging, please contact the Parish Clerk. The deadline for entries is 1st September 2019, and winners will be invited to our annual Awards evening, where they will receive their certificate and a prize.
