Glorious Gardens Awards
Organised by Keep Jesmond Clean
Even though the Jesmond Festival has had to be cancelled, we would still like to hold a Glorious Gardens competition. Details are yet to be confirmed but we will delay the closing and judging dates until later in the summer.
So if you have a front garden of any size visible from the street, please consider entering our competition! Gardening and tending to plants has been proven to improve physical and mental health, and we hope that over the next few difficult months people will find some pleasure and hope in their plots, however small. Enforced isolation might be the perfect time to get some fresh air and carry out those jobs in your garden that you have been putting off!
As Audrey Hepburn once said, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”!

There will be four categories, for pocket gardens (approx 2.5 x 4 m), larger gardens, wildlife friendly gardens, and community gardens.
