All competition entries will also be in with a chance of winning a garden egg chair worth up to £300.
Entrants to the competition have the chance to be crowned Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s ‘Best Kept Garden 2022’ winner plus a prize of a £100 garden centre voucher of their choice. Runners–up will also receive a £50 garden centre voucher of their choice. A winner will be chosen from each category, full details are available on the Council’s website.
The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Alderman Stephen Ross encourages all green-fingered residents to give it a go, stating: “Best Kept Garden Competition is about showcasing our civic pride in our homes, villages and towns. We would love to see more of our residents entering the competition and that’s why we’ve extended it for another week. Plus, we’re reaching out to a wider audience with our new wildlife and sustainability categories. So if your garden blooms with wildflowers or attracts wildlife using bird boxes or bug hotels, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase your sanctuary.”
The closing date for entries is now Sunday 7 August 2022 and winners will be announced in September. Enter via antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/bestkeptgarden
