Glorious gardens

In July, we asked you to send us a photo of your garden and to enter into a list of different

categories for the chance to win a certificate and gift voucher.

We had lots of great entries that the Officers of our main tenant group, Community Voice,

judged. They chose a winner and runner-up in each category.

Scott Charlton (South Killingholme) won the hanging baskets category: "I can't tell you how happy I was when I found out I had

won. At the same time I had just finished my cancer treatments and was feeling low due to it all so this helped to put a big smile

on my face.

"Having a beautiful garden and caring for it is not only rewarding, but it's also good for my mental health."

Leanne Fowler, Scunthorpe, whose two children won the kids vegetable patch category, added: "We started growing

vegetables during lockdown as something positive to do together, and we've all loved it. The pumpkins were the first-ever

vegetable the children had grown from a seed."

Take a look at some of the winning entries:
