Award for bloomin’ great Gee Cross gardeners

THE Gee Cross Brabyns Community Group were awarded runners-up prize in the ‘Guerrilla Gardener’ category in the Hattersley and Mottram Gardening Competition.

Jane Williams, group secretary, entered the group into the competition after residents planted and nurtured more than 250 sunflowers throughout the village earlier in the year.

The category recognises communities who make the most of public spaces through creative gardening.

“On behalf of the group, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the planting and upkeep of the plants,” said Jane.

“Watering the flowers in the village was quite a task, especially during the dry summer days.”
