Estuary in Bloom competition 2018

Spring is in the air, it's time for Estuary in Bloom!

This event is kindly sponsored by:     Purdy logo 

Thank you to everyone who sent in entries for Estuary in Bloom this year. The Federation of Estuary Residents chose the winner and had a difficult time deciding on their favourite garden. 
 
The winner this year is Christina White from Southend-on-Sea. Christina has filled her balcony with plants and the FER really enjoyed all the amazing colours and the flowers she had grown.
 
In second place was Susan Holdgate from Romford who only started gardening 7 years ago when she moved into her current house. In third place was Bryan Crouchman from Great Dunmow, Bryan was our winner in 2017 and has continued to keep up his amazing garden! 
 
Congratulations to our winners and thank you to Purdy Contracts Ltd for sponsoring this competition.
