Greenfingers of Runnymede

An opportunity for residents to take part in a gardening competition.

It is with regret that we announce that we have had to cancel the Greenfingers of Runnymede competition for 2020.

Thank you all for your enthusiasm for this year's competition and please do remember to apply for 2021.

 

Congratulations to all the winners of the Greenfingers of Runnymede Competition 2019!

Judging for the annual Greenfingers of Runnymede Competition 2019 took place on 2 July and we were very impressed with the level of effort and commitment residents had put into their gardens and allotments.

The best entries were selected by the panel and invited to an awards ceremony at Squires Garden Centre in Chertsey on Tuesday 9 July.

The winners were presented with their vouchers by sponsors of the event, Ms Sarah Squires from Squires Garden Centres, the Mayor of Runnymede, Councillor Parshotam Sohi, Chris Hunt, Head of Community Development, and Cllr Margaret Harnden.
