Take a look at the winners of our gardening competition
In July, we launched our summer gardening competition where tenants could send us a photo of their garden and enter into a list of different categories for the chance to win a certificate and gift voucher.
Since then we had lots of great entries that the Officers of our main tenant group, Community Voice, judged. They chose a winner and runner-up in each category.
Scott from South Killingholme won the hanging baskets category: “I take pride in any plant I grow and treat them like they’re my children – I get immense pleasure in seeing them bloom.
“I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found out I had won. At the same time I had just finished my cancer treatments and was feeling low due to it all so this helped to put a big smile on my face.
“Having a beautiful garden and tendering to it is not only rewarding, but it’s also good for my mental health.”
Leanne from Scunthorpe, whose two children won the kids vegetable patch category, added: “We took up growing vegetables during lockdown as something positive to do outdoors together, and we have all really enjoyed it.
“The pumpkins were the first ever vegetable the children had grown from a seed, so they were over the moon that they won the competition.”
