The winner and runners-up in the Naturally Royston Front Garden Competition 2018 have been announced.

Residents were invited to nominate a neighbour, friend or relative, for this year’s front garden competition run by Royston Town Council’s Naturally Royston comittee.

The winner was Martin Dawson who received the first prize of £100 from Royston town mayor Iain Leggett.

The committee said: “His garden is a colourful and eye-catching display of diverse planting and it was evident that Mr Dawson had worked very hard on its maintenance.”

The second place prize of £50 went to Sue Keenan, whose “compact but colourful garden makes quite an impact on the street and makes good use of limited space.”

Third place and prize of £25 went to Josephine Cook, for “her well-maintained and very colourful container garden which brightens up the whole area”.

The gardens were judged on July 10 after a very challenging time for gardeners because of the hot and dry weather however, it has been said that the top three gardens had all been cared for exceptionally well, despite the difficulties.

The certificates and cheques were presented by the mayor, councillor Iain Leggett. The Naturally Royston team would like to thank everyone who entered or nominated a garden.
