Every year during Spring or Summer the committee members of the Watton Society look at the gardens of Watton that can be seen from the road and show a good display of colour. A short list is prepared and the winner and highly commended chosen, usually by the current Mayor of Watton, who is also the President of the Watton Society. This is not always an easy decision and this year the Mayor made several visits to gardens on the short list before making her decision.
When we inform the winners and highly commended they are delighted that their gardens have been noticed and maybe appreciated by passers by to add to the pleasure of the gardeners!
A highly commended certificate was also awarded to the Town Council for the lovely displays in the High Street.
Our photograph shows the winners, Mr and Mrs Donegan of 35 Sharman Avenue, receiving the winning salver from Watton Town Mayor Pat Warwick and Watton Society Chairman John Kerr.
