  • Containers including window boxes and hanging baskets
  • Community – Hill enhancement
  • Professional – offices, schools or public houses

Residents will be competing for the Andrew Bishop Memorial Trophy and there will be a prize and commendation in each category. Awards will be presented at the Trust’s AGM.
