The Old Buckenham Gardening Event will be held in the Village Hall on Saturday 27 April. As the photo competition was successful last year the organisers (the Village Environment and Recycling Group) are running it again and would like even more entries from people of all ages. Basic details of the rules and the entry form are here on the blog and a printed version will be available at the village shop, Old Buckenham Stores.
So that you can start thinking about it now,the basic rules are just one entry per category, all entries must be submitted as prints and all photographs must be taken in a garden.
Prizes will be awarded for the winner and runner-up in each category with an overall winner and special children's prize. Also, visitors to the Gardening Event will be able to vote for their favourite photo.
It may seem a long time until April when you need to put your entries in but as one category is for a "winter wonderland" you may want to take a picture or two before all the current snowfall has melted away.
The full list of the six categories is:
- Reduce, reuse, recycle
- Winter wonderland
- My favourite spot in the garden
- Wildlife in the garden
- Blowing in the wind
