Last chance to enter garden competition

Time is running out if you want to enter the Berneslai Homes and Barnsley in Bloom annual garden competition.

The closing date for the competition, which is open to all tenants and residents of Barnsley, is Friday, 14 July.

The different categories include a general and Over 60s section consisting of

  • best garden
  • best planter/basket display
  • best vegetable garden
  • best environmentally friendly/wildlife garden

There is also a children’s section with prizes for the tallest sunflower (under 10s only) and best junior gardener (under 16s).

Each entry will be independently judged in August and the winners will be invited to an award ceremony to congratulate them and thank them for their hard work in improving their local area.

Berneslai Homes Director of Customer and Estate Services, Dave Fullen, said: “Each year we get some fantastic entries and it’s great to see tenants and residents taking such good care of their gardens. It’s not too late to enter and we’re looking forward to seeing what this year’s competition brings.”
