Brentwood in Bloom Best Kept Religious Grounds Competition 2016 Sponsored by Bennetts Funeral Directors Essex
We are very proud to sponsor the Brentwood In Bloom Best Kept Religious Grounds category again this year and during the past couple of weeks have sent our judges out to the churches who entered and were again amazed by the standards achieved. All entries rely on volunteers to help maintain the grounds, it is due to their relentless hard work and precious time that these standards were so high.
Our judges awarded points for the following;
Planting, Colour, Variety
Maintenance including tidiness
Staff, Member involvement
A wide range of categories to take into consideration and discuss whilst judging, which proved to be challenge in itself!
The prize giving ceremony took place on the 9th August and was held here at Bennetts Funeral Directors in Essex in our very own Memorial Garden, where we enjoyed a lovely buffet celebration catered by Jane Ward from Merrymeade House, Brentwood.
So therefore we are proud to announce the awards were presented as follows;
St George the Martyr Church, Brentwood
Fr Garry Jenkins and his team of volunteers
St Mary the Virgin Church, Shenfield
Linda Ward and team of volunteers
All Saints Church, Doddinghurst
Caroline Seville and team of volunteers
St Nicholas Church, Kelvedon Hatch
Kenneth Roast and team of volunteers
We would like to thank you all for attending and taking part in the competition this year, we do hope to continue in the future and would welcome more entries next year together with suggestions on how we can vary the judging criteria to encourage more to take part.
