Contest sows seeds in residents’ imaginations
ORGANiSER Judy Stevens said the competition had received an array of entries for the unusual container category, standing the village in good stead for its East Midlands in Bloom debut.
She said: “We have had more than 70 entries already and still counting.
“it certainly does seem to have triggered the imagination, and we have had containers planted in objects as diverse as a bone bird’s nest, a wine cooler and perhaps most unlikely of all, a sofa down at Prentices Recycling Yard.”
All age-groups have been bitten by the planting bug with Cubs planting their sweet peas in sweet jars.
Judging is due to take place on Friday evening, when Lady Cholmeley from Easton Walled Gardens will select the best children’s entry, the best entry from a local business and a best individual prize.
