It was smiles all round at Polegate Town Council’s annual civic and gardening awards evening held at the Polegate Town Hall on Monday (September 16).
The town’s top gardeners and allotment enthusiasts were presented with prizes, certificates and rosettes by Mayor Cllr Malcolm Cunningham.
Cllr Cunningham, along with his fellow councillors, scoured the streets and allotment gardens to identify this year’s worthy winners.
Cllr Cunningham praised the prize winners for their hard work, which he hoped would prove an inspiration and encouragement to ‘would be’ gardeners.
There was also a special presentation on the night.
John Dobson received the annual Civic Award for his tireless support for the community in Polegate.
He is known for his love of the town and is a respected bricklayer and roofer.
He made the town his home after marrying his wife Sandra.
