I trust that you have all enjoyed your summer breaks (if indeed you had one)and are now refreshed and looking forward to Christmas! Only joking it will soon be upon us!

Our thanks to all who took part in Buntingford in Bloom this year. Sadly the number of entries this year was disappointing - only 4 front gardens, 5 for rear gardens and one for containers. I would be interested to hear any comments on this, which might help us improve the uptake next year. Was the competition advertised well enough, for example? Or were there other reasons you decided not to enter.

The prize winners were:-

Front Garden

1st - Glynis Jaycock - 122 Fairfield

2nd - Rosemary Parker - 96 Dray Gardens

Rear Garden

1st - Mr & Mrs Brian Austin - 10 Church Street

2nd - Jean Devenish - 67 Monks Walk

Prizes will be presented at the Gardeners' Club Annual show on 4th of September at the URC hall in Baldock Road. The meeting starts at 8pm and we hope that all our prize-winners can attend.

The Town Council summer civic reception was held on 29th June when the 'guest of honour' was Finn the police dog, famous for Finn's law and 'Britains Got Talent', who was presented with the Freedom of Buntingford. The photograph shows Finn with PC Dave Wardell and our MP Sir Oliver Heald whose efforts helped Finn's Law make it through the parliamentary process.

The Community Garden in front of the police station in Baldock Road has had a facelift with new raised beds/seating areas - many thanks to Nationwide Supplies who provided all materials and labour - and new plants paid for by the Civic Society. At a ceremony on 31st July the gardens were re-dedicated by the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Sarah Beazley.
