Hafod in Bloom: Congratulations to our green-fingered winners!

This story came from our community newspaper. Click here to read the full newspaper.

This summer we introduced a new gardening competition, ‘Hafod in Bloom’, in which we encouraged our green fingered customers, both young and old, to show us their hard work in their beautiful gardens.

We also sent out 56 packets of free sunflower seeds to our customers so they could grow their own sunflowers and enter their tallest in our competition. A big thank you to Morrisons supermarket for donating some of the seeds.

We had 63 entries across all four categories of the competition, and after much deliberation our judges; Alison Clements, Head of Housing, Eira Watts, Housing Assistant, and our sponsors David Williams from Countrywide Grounds Maintenance, and Kevin Tamplin of TR33, awarded the following:
