Royal theme in annual competition
Last updated at 14:27, Friday, 25 May 2012
CORGIS and crowns are blooming among the border displays of plants and flowers in gardens across Kirkby.
Green-fingered homeowners have given the annual garden observation competition a regal theme this year.
Organiser Gail Burns, the village’s lollypop lady, explained: “We’ve asked people to put something ridiculously silly in their garden.
“We’ve been running this about eight years now but this year we’re trying to do it with a royal flavour.”
This year 106 houses and premises in the village are participating, and it’s not restricted just to gardens.
Gail hinted: “Both pubs and shop and post office have something in their windows that doesn’t belong there.”
The competition closes on June 2 with a first prize of £15, second prize of £10 and two runners up prizes of £5.
Entry forms are available from Moorland Stores for 50p.
The only rule is, all objects must be visible from the road or pavement.
