We all had a lot of fun recently in our truly green-fingered competition, which began in chilly January and bloomed beautifully in late September. All our homes took part and lovely Michelle Walton, our Leisure & Wellness Coordinator, had been a real driving force behind the whole thing as everyone lovingly planted, watered and nurtured their projects in anticipation of the judging on September 24.
Astbury Mere won overall but Prestbury won the Sensory Space category and scooped two commendations for Michelle and Les Moseley. Frances Tophill, presenter on ITV’s Love Your Garden, gave out the awards. So well done everyone who took the time to participate, help and encourage. Big thanks too go to charity Food4macc’s Stuart Potter and volunteers, who built our raised beds that will be producing some delicious veg for some time to come and Macclesfield Garden Centre, who donated pots and baskets. A blooming success all round!
