Volunteer gardeners of all ages had a great night at the Muck and Magic Award ceremony at the Spa last Wednesday. We were delighted that our young gardeners did so well. The “Summer Gardening Gang”, the group of children who grew our very productive beans, courgettes and sunflowers got a Gold Award for all their hard work. This was the first time they had entered the competition so a terrific achievement. Esme, Joseph, Ethan and Elleanor accepted the Award from the Mayor on everyone’s behalf. The Rainbows also won a Gold Award with special mention being made of their “bug hotel”. Overall our garden got a Gold and joint Best in Category in the Community Garden Section. These Awards have been added to the “Highly Commended” certificate that we received from West Ayton Parish Council. A big thank you to all the gardening volunteers who work so hard throughout the year to put on a good show for all the community.
