Market Weighton Town Council is hoping to hear from residents looking to showcase their great gardens.

Market Weighton Town Council has launched its popular Spring Garden Competition and is inviting residents to get involved.

The town council would particularly like to hear from new residents who would like to their gardens into the competition for the first time.

Closing date for competition entries is Monday 23 April, while the judging day will be on Monday 14 May.

Entry forms for the competition are now available from the Town Hall Office, Post Office, Newsagent, Public Library and The Community Hall.

They can also be downloaded from the council’s website at www.marketweightontowncouncil.gov.uk and also its Facebook page at mwtowncouncil.

A spokesman for the event said: “The judges are looking forward to visiting the regular gardeners to see what changes they have introduced since last year.”

Entry forms for the Summer Garden Competition, which takes place in July each year, will be available in May.

The awards for both competitions will be presented at an event to be held in the Community Hall in October when all the gardeners who enter can take part in a quiz accompanied by a delicious free buffet supper.

For further enquiries about both competitions contact Stacey Jayne Bellamy or Kevin Keller at Market Weighton Town Council on 01430 871430.
