The late afternoon event will celebrate the winners in the following categories :

Gemma Boulton, Communities and Co-regulation Manager said : “We are delighted to announce the date of this year’s garden competition awards ceremony.  The quality of entrants this year has been outstanding and our judges had a tough job in making their decisions.  We look forward to the event which will celebrate all the hard work, dedication and commitment of our green fingered residents!”
Winners in each category will receive £100 each in gardening vouchers.
The closing date for this year’s event was Monday 26 June, with the judging by Bill Simpson, OBE, former Principal of Pershore College, taking place on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 July.
