The winners of the Greenfingers of Runnymede competition have been announced at an awards ceremony which took place on Tuesday 9 July at Squires Garden Centre.

Judging for the annual competition took place on Tuesday 2 July, where the panel, including Runnymede's Mayor Cllr Parshotam Sohi, made the tough decision of picking winners for each category.

After the best entries were selected, they were invited to attend a small awards ceremony, where participants were treated to a drink and some canap├ęs to celebrate their hard work.

The winners were presented with vouchers by sponsors of the event, Colin Squires from Squires Garden Centres, and Cllr Sohi.
