Thank you to everyone who entered our 2020 Wandle Green Fingers gardening competition and helped me it a success.
Our virtual panel of judges including; one of our residents, a Wandle Estates Manger, the Contracts Manager from our Estates Services partner Pinnacle and our Chief Executive, Tracey Lees really had their work cut out picking winners from the high level of entries.
Tracey Lees, Chief Executive Officer at Wandle said: “Our residents are behind this idea of a competition to help promote health and wellbeing, which we are very happy to support. However, the competitors haven’t made it easy for us to pick our winners this year. It is clear from the quality of entries just how passionate and dedicated our residents are when it comes to planting, growing and creating beautiful natural displays both indoors and outdoors.
"We wanted to give every entrant first prize but of course, as it’s a competition, we couldn’t and I'm pleased to say in the end, I believe we selected some very worthy winners!”
Wandle Green Fingers has proved a great way to champion resident involvement. The response from all who got involved has been very positive, with some saying they would like to enter again next year.
We hope to run the competition next year even bigger and better, so we want to encourage you all to start thinking about your 2021 entry!
Each category winner received a £50 prize voucher and a certificate.
Thanks to our estates services provider Pinnacle for sponsoring additional prizes:
- a £40 gift voucher awarded to the Highly Commended entry (second place Best Outdoor Display) and,
- a £25 gift voucher for everyone else who entered the competition.
Congratulations to our winning entries
