Customer Wins Best Garden Awards

Posted by Adrian Harwood on 17th July 2017 in Sponsorships

Regular customer, Anne Slocombe was (independently) chosen as this year's winner of the Best Kept Garden in Lancing. The Lancing Parish Council organised event was sponsored by Gardner and Scardifield. Anne was presented with the winner's shield by no less than gardening expert Jean Griffin, who presents the BBC shows Sunday Gardening and Dig It. Jean, who studied at Studley and Kew, is also a judge for South East in Bloom.

Winner of the Best Hanging Basket was awarded to Mary Moody.

The prizegiving event was held in Lancing Parish Hall and attended by around 50 people.

Organiser, Robin Monk, was very please with the number and quality of the entries. 'We have had quite a few more than Horsham, which is a great achievement in its first year since the award has been revived.' he said. 'Next year's award will be slightly earlier in the year to catch the early summer blooms'. Gardner and Scardifield Garden Centre manager, Jon Brunton, added 'I know Anne and Mary quite well as customers and so I was very please that they have been chosen as this year's winners'.
