Are you proud of your garden?

Environment Hailsham this week launched its Best Front Garden Competition, which has been operating for more than 20 years.

It calls all enthusiastic gardeners to enter their Hailsham front garden – which must be visible from the road/pavement allowing passers-by to enjoy their design and beauty.

The aim is to encourage civic pride and enhance the look of the town. The judging will take place at the end of June.

Chairman of Environment Hailsham, Richard Grocock, said, “Last year we had many people entering the competition and this year I hope to have even more.

“The impact of having a well-kept garden with bright flowers really lifts the appearance of the town and will help us with the national ‘In Bloom’ competition in July.”

Application forms are available from Hailsham Library, Western Road, or the Town Council Offices in Market Street. Entry closing date is June 17.

Environment Hailsham is a registered charity and aims to brighten up the town with floral troughs and flowerbeds.
