Gardening Competition 2023

Congratulations to all the winners, and everyone who entered our new gardening competition.

The two judges, TWRA Management Committee Member, Christine Bormann and (main judge) Joy Pollard – did an excellent job on judging day, Saturday 9 September, differentiating between 24 outstanding, beautiful, and varied gardens.

It wasn’t an easy task, so a big thank you to both.

It was a wonderful day; great weather, and a pleasure to meet the happy and friendly Twin Waters gardeners, all justifiably proud of their gardens and their achievements.
