Ellon community council recently held the 21st garden competition prize giving ceremony.
More than 100 gardens and displays were nominated for an award this year. The overall winners were Mr and Mrs Littlejohn of Sunnyside, Schoolhill, with the overall runner up going to Mr Chapman of Brentfield Circle. Judges, Councillor Gillian Owen and Isobel Davidson and Sophie Humphries of Aberdeenshire Council Community commented on the exceptional standard of entries and suggested that a “judges special award” should be introduced next year. Organiser, Aileen Taylor, thanked Formartine Partnership for a grant which allowed the community council to provide trophies for winners and runners up. Community council chairman Sandy Mcdougall thanked members and congratulated all 100 nominees on making the competition a continued success.
