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.
