A Bury St Edmunds gardener who received a certificate of merit from the town’s Bury in Bloom judges has won a £50 voucher sponsored by a property management company.
Hazells in Bury St Edmunds offered rental properties who received a merit certificate the chance to win the £50 gardening voucher, and Mike Ely was drawn from the entries.
Mr Ely’s front garden in Crown Street is well known to residents and visitors who walk towards the Theatre Royal, the Greene King Brewery Cafe or back into town.
Melanie Lesser, Bury in Bloom Co-coordinator, said: “It was generous of Hazells to donate the prize for the competition, which was open to any rented property in the town who was awarded a certificate of merit.
“We will run the promotion again in 2018 and hope that even more tenants of rental properties put themselves forward for the prize.
“Mike is a deserving winner as he puts so much time and effort into his front garden.”
