Greenfingered Gainsborough and Sheffield residents claim garden prizes

Acis in Bloom winner

A Sheffield and Gainsborough resident has taken up our top prize in our annual competition looking to find the best summer garden.

Claire Blount scooped the award in the Acis in Bloom competition open to all of our 5,500 homes.

Gainsborough’s Margaret Conway took first place in the best creative use of a small space category. Both winners receive £50 garden vouchers.

Our 2016 winners:

Best summer garden:

Winner: Ms Claire Blount, Sheffield

First runner-up: Mr Kendrick Lilly, Gainsborough

Second runner-up: Mrs Margaret Conway, Gainsborough

Best creative use of a small space:

Winner: Mrs Margaret Conway, Gainsborough

First runner-up: Ms Annie Leigh, Sheffield

Second runner-up: Ms Michele Robinson, Retford

With more entrants than ever before, judges were impressed with the creativity of Acis residents and spent hours whittling down the entries to find this year’s winner.

The awards were judged by our very own Chief Executive Greg Bacon, A Place to Call Our Own’s Alan Withington and gardening expert Colin Bates. 

Colin said: “The competition was incredible. There were so many beautiful gardens and you could really tell people put a lot of effort in making their gardens unique. Everyone who entered should be very proud and it was a joy to judge”.
