HAPPY 2018 GAR­DEN­ERS

I have just read the ar­ti­cle in Kent Life about my gar­den and I thought it was lovely. My friends and fam­ily have told us how well writ­ten it was and thought the pho­tos were ex­cel­lent. Both David and I are get­ting over our amaze­ment at win­ning the Ama­teur Gar­den of the Year award. It means a lot to us. You are wel­come any time you wish to come around to see us or the gar­den.

Many thanks for your help and for or­gan­is­ing such a worth­while com­pe­ti­tion to get peo­ple of all ages in­ter­ested in gar­den­ing and in the enor­mous ben­e­fits gar­den­ing brings to health and life in gen­eral.

Sylvie Buat-Menard and David Say­ers

Ed’s note: It was lovely to see you both – and all the other fi­nal­ists – at the Gar­den Awards and I hope you en­joy the re­port and pic­ture cov­er­age on pages 146-148.

We just wanted to say thank you for the lovely Kent Life Gar­den of the Year high tea. It was great to meet some of the other fi­nal­ists and to see the Had­low Col­lege cam­pus. We will def­i­nitely re­turn to have a proper look at its gar­dens.

We very much en­joyed be­ing part of the com­pe­ti­tion, and it was a spe­cial treat to meet all of the judges, both here and again at the awards.

Susie and Marc Beney, Wain­scott, Rochester Colin and I so en­joyed our­selves at the Kent Life An­tique Col­lec­tor of the Year Awards. The crown­ing point of the evening was, of course, re­ceiv­ing my lovely tro­phy, which has pride of place in our sit­ting room. The cheque will cer­tainly be put to good use; I am plan­ning a trip to the Sil­ver Vaults where they fre­quently have sets of both enamel and sil­ver but­tons for sale, hith­erto out of my price range, so I will seek some­thing lovely to buy.
