This year the Britain in Bloom and Burnham & Highbridge in Bloom competition did not operate due to the coronavirus outbreak.  With the effort that has been undertaken by people in their gardens the Town Council felt this should not go un-noticed.

12 pictures submitted all very different concepts of a garden.  Many thanks to all the gardeners who entered, your work is a joy to see and truly uplifts the spirit. 

It was impossible to make a simple overall judgement of them as each garden represented thought and effort.  However, after careful thought I made categories which I believe is a fairer was to list preferences, but please note that just because your own entry was not listed your garden was not liked.  They were ALL lovely, but some just edged a hair’s breadth in the category! Judge Cllr Mrs Janet Keen

2nd – picture 1 – reason:  riot of colour in an area with a difficult environment i.e. on an open balcony the plants subject to strong air currents.  Again very good plantsman ship
