03 Jun Open Spaces team at Tendring District Council enter garden show
The Open Spaces team at Tendring District Council (TDC) have entered a garden into a prestigious show event.
Themed around Public Realm, the garden will compete for a prize at the Little Bentley Hall Waterways and Garden Show, taking place on June 1-2.
Designed to reflect how public spaces can be enjoyed for outdoor living or entertainment, it will include a formal garden area with traditional bedding plants, a sandy area with beach hut-style seats, and maple trees and wooden fencing to mirror the tranquil parks and gardens TDC maintains.
The team have been working on installation this week, in between seasonal work at TDC open spaces across the district, and is hoping to come out top in the judging.
Ian Taylor, Head of Public Realm at TDC, said he hoped for some recognition for the team’s work.
“Many residents and visitors to Tendring will have enjoyed our open spaces, whether they be parks, gardens or greenswards, without necessarily thinking about all of the hard work that goes into maintaining them,” Mr Taylor said.
“It is a nice change for the team to be able to enter a competition such as this, and to demonstrate in one place the work we do to support outdoor living.”
Little Bentley Hall Waterways and Garden Show is held every three years and raises thousands of pounds for charity, as well as giving visitors the chance to explore the hall’s gardens which are not open to the public at any other time.
Tickets for the show are available in advance, visit www.seetickets.com
