Spalding residents are being urged to give their homes some kerb appeal by entering a competition to find the best front garden.

For the second year running the competition is being run by Spalding In Bloom committee in conjunction with the Spalding Guardian and Lincolnshire Free Press.

And the contest is being sponsored by Birchgrove Garden Centre in Pinchbeck, which is putting up prizes of £50, £25 and £10 for the three best entrants.

The competition is easy to enter – just fill in the form on this page and send it with a picture of your front garden to the address shown.

Or email us your picture to jeremy.ransome@jpress.co.uk and include all the details asked for on the form – your name, address and telephone number.

Entries must be with us by June 23.

The rules are simple – the garden must be at the front of the house and visible from the path. It should be possible for judges to access the garden.

All entries must be on an entry form or email and be accompanied by a photograph.

Judges will be visiting all the entries between June 30 and July 13. The winners will be announced on Thursday, July 17.

The winner will receive the Spalding in Bloom Best Front Garden trophy.

Phil Scarlett, president of Spalding and District Chamber of Commerce, which is involved in Spalding in Bloom’s efforts, said: “Last year 18 gardens entered the competition and the judges had a hard task deciding on the winners because of the very high standard from all the entrants.”

The winners of the 2013 competition were Judy and Terry Wing, of Park Avenue.

This year they will take part in The Frank Constable Best Front Garden Competition organised by The East Midlands in Bloom Committee and judged by the East Midlands in Bloom Judges during their visit to Spalding in July.
