Garden Competition 2020

Due to the effects of the coronavirus, closed garden centres, etc the Hill Trust committee is sorry to announce  that this year’s Garden Competition may be cancelled.  Update due shortly.


During a normal year the judging of the Garden Competition takes place at the end of June / beginning July. The judges look at the overall garden design, maintenance and the imaginative use of colour and planting combinations

The four classes are :

  • Front gardens, courtyards and patios
  • 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.

There are no entry forms to complete. You can nominate a garden by emailing

Also , if you and your neighbours spot any neglected areas that you would like to improve, we would also like to hear from you.
