Chorley gardeners brighten up borough
Gardeners have been rewarded for their efforts which helped brighten up Chorley over the summer.
Front gardens across the borough were entered in to the annual best kept garden competition run by Chorley Council and Chorley and District Gardening Society.
And the winners were presented with their certificates at a special ceremony at Birkacre Garden Centre, which sponsored the contest, by the Mayor of Chorley Coun John Walker.
Coun Adrian Lowe, who oversees floral displays at Chorley Council, said: “We had an amazing number of entries this year, far more than we’ve had for many years, and the standard was extremely high making it a difficult task for the judges.
“I’d like to thank everyone who entered the competition for all their hard work in their gardens to make sure they bloomed this summer, and brightened up the whole of Chorley.
“Next year we plan to have more categories and so open the competition up to even more people, so we hope we’ll get even more entries next year.” The three categories were: Best small garden; best medium garden and best large garden.
The overall winner, who received the coveted Best Kept Garden trophy, was Ray Norris, of Southport Road, Ulnes Walton, who also won a certificate and vouchers for taking first place in the best medium garden category.
