THE winners of an annual town horticulture competition have been announced.

Blooming Mold, organised by Mold Town Council, once again attracted a crop of entrants from across the town.

The children’s garden in a tray competition, which was voted for by the public whilst on display on Daniel Owen Square, resulted in joint winners.

The two winners were six-year-old Kitty Mallen from Mold who created a 70th NHS Anniversary inspired garden which included an operating table amongst the floral decorations and Joel Jones, aged 7 and also from Mold, who created a Lego inspired garden with toy dogs in the garden.

Blooming Mold judges Graham Wright, from Mold Gardening Club, and cllr Brian Lloyd carried out the judging of the gardens and hanging baskets categories.

After careful consideration, the judges decided to award first place for best kept front garden to Ann and Arthur Bebb from Elm Drive and best wildlife garden was awarded to Barbara Rowley from The Close.

The best kept hanging basket first prize was awarded to Josephine Wolfe from Bromfield Park with second place going to Kathy Belcher from Elm Drive.

Winners and runners up each received a certificate and prize cheque for £60 for first prize and £30 for second prize.
