What is the council Garden Awards?
Angus Council runs the Annual Council House Garden Awards with prizes being presented for the best gardens in each housing area (Arbroath, Carnoustie & Monifieth, Brechin & Montrose and Forfar & Kirriemuir). A prize giving ceremony, hosted by the Convener of Neighbourhood Services, is held towards the end of the summer for all nominations with winners being announced on the day.
What are the prizes?
There are three prizes within each housing area which includes a certificate and a cash prize for each winner - the first and second prize winners also receive a trophy which they keep until the following year's competition. In addition, there is a prize for the best garden throughout Angus (overall winner) and the Director's Special Award is presented to the tenant who has maintained their garden to an extremely high standard in exceptional circumstances.
