Revealed: the best gardens in Westhoughton
THE best gardens in Westhoughton have been celebrated at an awards ceremony.
Champions of the 2013 Daisy Hill in Bloom competition were crowned at Daisy Hill Community Centre.
Cllr David Chadwick, Westhoughton Town Council leader, presented the awards at the fifth instalment of the competition, with 14 gardeners given a prize.
The runners-up were gardens in Rayden Crescent, Bentworth Close and Chapelstead.
Veronica Swinburne, committee chairman, said: “We’re all proud of what we’ve achieved over the past five years, and we’re very grateful to Westhoughton Town Council for continuing to support us.
“The most important thing now is to keep the momentum up for the next five years, and for that we really need more volunteers who would be prepared to give us an hour or two of their time a few times a year.
“Congratulations to David and I hope more people are inspired to take part next year.”
Daisy Hill in Bloom was established to help brighten up and improve the neighbourhood, with activities such as weeding, planting, litter-picking getting members of the community involved.
Each year the committee judges the best front gardens around the centre of Daisy Hill, and invite the green-fingered locals who are responsible for them to a presentation of awards.
