Gardening competition

Is your front garden looking in good health after the recent rain, with a good display of colour and layout?

If so, then why not enter it for the “Buxton in Spring” competition, organised by Burbage Gardening Society.

The competition will be judged on the overall impression of a front garden, as viewed from the pavement.

Entry is free and entries are invited from anywhere in the town, before May 21.

Judging will take place in the week following.

To enter, send your name, address and phone number by email to or call 24952. If you admire the front garden of a friend or neighbour, then encourage them to enter as well.

Prizes of garden vouchers will be presented at 7.30pm on June 11 at a Burbage Gardening Society meeting at Burbage Institute.
