What our tenants say

Celebrating Blooming Marvellous Gardens at Clanmil

12 October 2017

Tenants are celebrating their recent success in a Northern Ireland wide gardening competition run by local housing association, Clanmil Housing Group.

The competition is run each year by Clanmil to acknowledge and reward those tenants who take a keen interest in keeping the green spaces around their homes looking the very best they can.  It also gives tenants with green fingers and a passion for gardening a chance to showcase their handiwork.

 

Residents were presented with their awards by Clanmil Chief Executive, Clare McCarty at a special celebration at The Braid in Ballymena.  The event provided an opportunity to highlight all of the hard work that goes into making the gardens at Clanmil housing schemes look first class.



Winners on the day included Somme Park in Derry/Londonderry, where residents won the Grow Your Own category for their vegetable plot, Abercorn Court in Portrush which won best Independent Living Scheme garden, Hezlet Court in Coleraine which won the participation award and Glenshesk Court in Ballycastle who took the top prize for most innovative garden.  Felden in Newtownabbey was named Best Overall Family Development and Newtownabbey resident Colette Goodall won Best Individual Gardener.  The top accolade of Overall Winner went to The Imperial independent living scheme in Donaghadee.     



Tim O’Malley, Community Development Manager at Clanmil, said;

“We really appreciate the interest that so many of our tenants show in their gardens and the time, hard work and effort that they dedicate to making them look so well. 

“Each year the number and standard of Clanmil in Bloom entries increase, and this year the judges had a really hard job choosing winners from over 50 gardens. Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to the many people who helped create and maintain the winning gardens.”
