Sandgate in Bloom 2019: The Results!

Sandgate Parish Council have launched a “Sandgate in Bloom” competition, seeking to acknowledge those businesses that are doing so much to brighten our village during the summer with their floral displays.

A guest “mystery shopper” was around the village and Golden Valley last week, and the results of the 2019 jury are now in!

And, first prize goes to [opens envelope]…

Encore. Our judge said “Jackie’s ‘Encore’ has the largest profusion of colourful blooms displayed outside and deserves the first prize”.

We also have a runner up, Old English Pine, which was praised for “their colourful display in large butler sinks” and also highly commended was The Providence Inne for their rooftop display of window boxes.

Congratulations to all: Jackie from Encore will be invited to the next meeting of the Council’s Environment Committee to receive her prize.
