Budding gardeners Mr and Mrs Amos voted blooming best in town
Michael and Angela Amos are this years winners of the Sittingbourne in Bloom – Summer Front Gardens Competition.
Sittingbourne residents had their gardens scrutinised by a team of judges drawn from the In Bloom Committee, the Sittingbourne Society, the Gardeners and Flower Arrangers Society, Sittingbourne and Milton Rotary Club, Sittingbourne Lions and town residents.
The final judging was carried out by the Mayor, Councillor Anita Walker, the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Lesley Ingham the In Bloom Committee Chairman, Malcolm Moore and Swale in Bloom Co-ordinator, Ali Corbel.
Commenting on this year's competition, Malcolm Moore said "Despite the unpromising start to the year the town’s gardeners have once again put on a fantastic show.”
“Some of the gardens were the best we’ve ever seen and the quality of the best gardens was outstanding. And it is gratifying to see so many new gardens in the list some from areas previously devoid of good gardens.”
“The long list of Highly Commended and Commended gardens reflects the overall quality of the gardens this year and Sittingbourne’s gardeners are to be congratulated on another outstanding year.”
“On behalf of the In Bloom Committee I would like to thank all the winners whose efforts help to make Sittingbourne a brighter and more colourful place in which to live and work”.
The trophies, prizes and certificates will be presented at the annual Sittingbourne In Bloom prize-giving ceremony to be held in the URC Hall, Central Avenue, on Monday 28th September 2015.
