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”.
