The win­ners of this year’s Muck and Magic gar­dens com­pe­ti­tion re­ceived their prizes at a cer­e­mony last Wed­nes­day.

Awards and cer­tifi­cates were pre­sented by the Mayor of Scar­bor­ough, Coun Joe Plant, at a glitzy cer­e­mony or­gan­ised at the Scar­bor­ough Spa.

Muck and Magic judges, who vis­ited over 160 pri­vate and com­mu­nity gar­dens, flo­ral busi­nesses, schools and car­a­van sites over the sum­mer, de­scribed the class of 2018 as one of the best.

They also com­pli­mented en­trants on their ef­forts to “keep their pre­cious blooms flow­er­ing” in spite of the in­tense heat.

Among the win­ners were Fri­arage School, who picked up the

Most Loved School Award af­ter scoop­ing a York­shire in Bloom Sil­ver Gilt ear­lier in the sum­mer, new en­try Step­ney Hill Farm First Light Trust Gar­den, who topped the Com­mu­nity Gar­den Class along­side Os­godby Memo­rial Gar­den, and Liz Blades and Linda Tom­czak, joint win­ners of the highly com­pet­i­tive Yar­dens class.

Also praised for their hard work and the hours they ded­i­cated to dec­o­rat­ing the area were the many vol­un­teers work­ing to­gether across the bor­ough.

Friends of Seamer Vil­lage scooped the Muck and Magic award for Best Vil­lage Green and Whitby in Bloom were recog­nised as Cham­pion Grow­ers for their flo­ral bas­kets and boxes project.
