Shaping North Ayrshire – Your Environment You Decide!

The recent Three Towns Participatory Budgeting pilot asked residents of Ardrossan, Saltcoats and Stevenston to decide how to spend part of the Council’s Grounds Maintenance budget for the area. One of the most popular ideas was to introduce a best garden competition, so based on this result, we have launched a contest to find some of our best-kept gardens.

We are looking for green-fingered residents in the Three Towns to show off their beautiful gardens and highlight some amazing horticultural creations!

There are four categories to apply for:

  • Small garden
  • Large garden
  • Community garden
  • Young person’s garden

Please download the application form below and return to participatorybudgeting@north-ayrshire.gov.uk. Alternatively for a paper version, ask at your local Library or the Focus Learning Centre in Saltcoats. You can nominate your own garden or a friend’s!

The application deadline for the competition has been extended to 20 August 2018. You will also be asked to submit a maximum of three photos of your garden by 22 August, 2018. This will allow judges to shortlist the gardens progressing to the final. The judging panel will visit finalists and select winners in the first week of September.

There will be prizes awarded for each category.
