Environment Hailsham is launching its Best Front Garden competition.

It calls on all enthusiastic gardeners to enter their Hailsham front garden in the competition, which has been operating for more than 20 years.

All the entry gardens have to be visible from the road/pavement.

The aim is to enhance the look of the town and the judging will take place at the end of June.

Chairman of Environment Hailsham, Richard Grocock, said: “Last year we had many people entering for the competition and this year I hope to have even more. The impact of having a well kept garden with bright flowers really lifts the appearance of the town and will help us with the national ‘In Bloom’ competition in July. Last year in this national south east area competition, we were awarded a Silver Gilt award and scored well in the community section which involved the best front garden. I am looking forward to seeing the entries for this popular competition and to see how creative the people of Hailsham are.”

Environment Hailsham is a registered charity and aims to brighten up the town with floral troughs and flower beds.

The planting takes place twice a year, in the winter and summer.

As an independent organisation, Environment Hailsham has to raise its own funds and is run by volunteers. Sponsorship and practical help is always needed for planting, weeding and watering and fund raising, and if anyone is interested in assisting the group, contact Richard on 01323 842931. Application forms for entering the competition are available from Hailsham Library or Hailsham Town Council Offices in Market Street, Hailsham. Closing date: June 17.
