After a decade-long hiatus, the Marchmont and Sciennes Community Council Front Gardens and Containers Annual Awards are returning this summer.
Any garden and/or container clearly visible from the pavement will be considered. The walkabout judging will take place in July, and there is no need to enter the competition - as long as your garden or container can be seen, it will be eligible for consideration for an award.
The categories are:
- Front gardens (East, South, and West-facing)
- North-facing front gardens
- Hanging baskets and containers
- Wildlife-friendly gardens
- New gardens
- Other commended gardens
There will be awards in each category, and there will also be an overall winner, who will be awarded the Smalley Cup (generously funded by our retired Postmasters, Graham and Jean Smalley).
All of the award winners will be presented with their certificates and a small prize, donated by Marchmont and Sciennes Community Council, at the Church of the German-Speaking Congregation in Chalmers Crescent on Saturday September 4th. Good luck and happy gardening!
