Great greenery show in Ellon

The 20th Ellon CC Garden Competition 2013, co-ordinated by CC member Aileen Taylor, was a great success.

Nominations for various categories were received from members of the public and Ellon CC members.

The gardens were judged by Hazel Simpson of Aberdeenshire Council and the winners were presented with their trophies and certificates at a ceremony at Ellon Academy on August 14.

Community council chairman Sandy McDougall said: “Hazel and Members of the CC visited all areas of Ellon and were very impressed at the quality and diversity of gardens throughout the town. In a close run contest the overall winners were Andy and Kym Leonard of Park Villa, Schoolhill and the runner up was Mr and Mrs Littlejohn of Sunnyside Schoolhill. A CC special award also went to the Buchan hotel for its impressive display of tubs and window boxes.”
