Latest news from WCARA

Dear Neighbours,
I hope you and your families are keeping well and enjoying the sunshine this weekend?

I would like thank neighbours who have entered WCARA's Best Garden Competition and also remind everyone else that the last date for entry is Sunday 19th July. We certainly have a few who aspiring Alan Titchmarsh amongst us!

I am also excited to share with you, Shaun Wallace, Quiz master from the TV Program "The Chase" will be handing out prizes to winners. We have received some great entries including very innovative use of old hand bags to plant the flowers in!!
As a reminder, here are the rules again:

1) All entrants must complete an entry via email to by Sunday 19th July. Please email me your full name, address, telephone, email and three pictures.
2) Judging will take into account of how (a)colour is used, (b) innovative use of materials, (c) variety of plants, (d) how it benefits wildlife and (e) how it improves the neighbourhood.
3) Any photographs (maximum 3) submitted must have been taken in June/July of the current year.
4) Any entries consisting of or including artificial plants will be rejected.
5) Only one entry per household will be accepted.
6) By entering the competition all entrants agree to abide by the rules and to participate in associated publicity including having their photographs being taken, if required. We will be sharing pictures on our website and social media.
7) The entrant agrees to allow judges (maximum 2 WCARA committee members) to enter the gardens if required. As we are living through the pandemic, we will try to avoid this but may require some access.
8) We are keen for those with small spaces, balconies and front gardens to enter.
9) WCARA committee members and families are not permitted to enter the competition.
10) No correspondence will be entered into and the judges' decisions are final.
11) The winners will be announced week commencing 20th July.

We will have prizes for the following categories, and they will be confirmed later:
