Woman from Padiham wins gardening competition
3:03pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
A PADIHAM woman is celebrating after she won a gardening competition held by Burnley-based housing group Calico.
Marian Wilkinson collected a £50 voucher after her Bedford Place lawn was named ‘most improved garden’.
Calico’s neighbourhood action team for Padiham, which works with tenants to help maintain sustainable communities, recently held a planting day in the town.
Residents were offered a selection of free plants and asked to sign a pledge to keep their gardens clean and tidy.
Kathryn Davies, neighbourhood officer for Calico, said: “We would like to thank everyone who came and took part in the planting day, despite the pouring rain, and congratulations to Marian on her well-deserved win.
“With help from her friends and family, Marian has put a lot of effort into making her garden look fantastic.
“She really enjoys sitting out and relaxing in her garden, so the vouchers will be put to good use.”
