FRONT GARDEN COMPETITION RESULTS

Our Front garden competition has, once again, delighted us with the lovely gardens we looked at.
The judging was done last week by Mr Rupert Horsey of Bath College, Somer Valley campus and what a strong competition it was.
The winners of the best Front Garden was Mr and Mrs Preston of Glebelands. Mr Preston was presented with his cup and prize of a voucher from Thomsons Hardware of Radstock by Chairman Cllr Geoff Fuller today. Mr Horsey said “A fantastic range of plants including fruit trees, shrubs, herbaceous and annuals. The gravel, rocks and paving are very well thought out. I liked the bird table”.

The winners of the best container were Jo O’Donaghue and John Reynolds of Elm Terrace. The judge said that their baskets were “brilliant”. He said they are “well designed with great colours and structure, working well with the rest of the garden. The maintenance and growth is fantastic”

Well done to the winners and thank you to all entrants. The standard was very high. We look forward to your entries next year – watch this space!

GREEN AND OPEN SPACES IN WESTFIELD

Do you use the green and open spaces of Westfield?

Perhaps you are a dog walker who enjoys Waterside Valley, or you may take your family to the play areas and cycle paths of Westfield. Possibly you belong to a group which goes on nature walks or runs in our green spaces. Whatever your background, if you use the green and open spaces of Westfield you may like to take part in the Westfield Green and Open Spaces Group.

Your input can be as little or large as you like. You might like simply to receive the minutes of the group and email some thoughts. Or you might like to come along to meetings, put forward your suggestions and work towards seeing them come to fruition. Input at all levels is welcome.

We hope to hear from you. Please contact the Westfield Parish Clerk on council@westfieldparishcouncil.co.uk or call 01761 410669 or look at the website to monitor the progress of the group www.westfieldparishcouncil.co.uk
