Highams Park's Beautiful Front Gardens Competition - Results

Introduction

In 2014, the Forum organised a competition to celebrate the Beautiful Front Gardens of Highams Park. Full details can be found by clicking this link: Front Gardens Competition

The closing date was 31st August 2014 but entries received before Highams Park Day (12th July) were put on display in the Forum's tent at Highams Park Day. Residents could nominate their Neighbour's Garden or even their own. We were looking for photographs of residents' favourite local front garden. It could have been anything from an unusual plant or feature, to a window box.

The results were announced in October 2014 and were as follow:
First Prize:
#C9 (Cottage Gardens) in Russetts Close

Certificates:
#F8 (Formal Gardens) in The Bramblings
#F9 (Formal Gardens) in Castle Avenue


Photos of the winning gardens can be seen in the appropriate categories below.

Organizer Oona Kelly would like to thank everyone who submitted photographs of the wonderful gardens in our local area. A lot of hard work and tender care goes into producing areas that are a delight not only to the gardeners but also to many local people and of course the local wildlife. The winner was given a house plant to compliment the beautiful display of flowers in the front garden. All our proud gardeners were delighted that their local community thought their gardens were beautiful.

Thank you to all our local gardeners for making Highams Park such a beautiful place to live in,
