Get growing now for Carrbrook gardens competition

Residents have a month to get their green fingers growing to enter the Carrbrook Garden Competition.

The contest has been made possible by The Buckton Vale Quarry and Dukinfield/Stalybridge Rotary Club who have sponsored the event with the Stalybridge North councillors.

The garden competition is open to all residents who live in the Carrbrook area with two categories.

The first is for the ‘Best Kept Garden (front or back)’ and the second for ‘Bees and Butterflies (attracting bees and butterflies).’

Trophies and garden vouchers are up for grabs for the first and second places in each category.

Four judges have been selected for their knowledge and experience with gardening competitions, while Tameside Council is supporting the event with one of the horticultural officers agreeing to be a judge.

The closing date for entries is Friday, August 13, and for an entry form you can contact Cllr Jan Jackson on 07581114517 or email jan.jackson@tameside.gov.uk

The Carrbrook Community Garden will host the presentation event and it will also provide an opportunity for residents to see the transformation of the garden in the area.

The Civic Mayor of Tameside will be presenting certificates to the winners and one of the trophies is going to be presented by Cllr Sam Gosling, the other by the President of Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club, Ian Cochrane.
