Launching on Thursday, anyone living in the Cheltenham area is being invited to enter the ‘Most Attractive Property Front’ competition, celebrating beautiful gardens and our wonderful NHS.
TV celebrity, horticulturalist, and author Stefan Buczacki, who has two family members working in the NHS, will judge the competition. Winners will receive £250 worth of vouchers for Webbs Garden Centre in Cheltenham. They will also be photographed with Stefan and receive one of his signed books.
Mr Buczacki said:
“What a privilege to be involved in the NHS Property Front Competition. Plants of course have always been important in my life, while the NHS has over the past eighteen months proved itself one of this country’s most cherished assets. With two hospital consultants in my own family, I have been close to seeing how much has been sacrificed by so many to keep us safe. How wonderful therefore to find a cause that combines two subjects so close to my own heart.”
Participants are encouraged to be innovative and have fun with the competition. Creative Ideas could include window boxes, hanging baskets, pot plant displays, theming front doors, gates, balconies, front gardens. Entries must include some element of plant work and the supplied NHS Garden Stake.
Stakes are available to be displayed alongside entries. They can be collected either from Webbs Garden Centre, Evesham Road in Cheltenham, the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, or the Perry Bishop office on Bath Road in Cheltenham.
To enter, please either:
– email firstname.lastname@example.org in the Cheltenham office with your front property image displaying the stake
– by Instagram @perrybishopandchambers or Facebook @perrybishopcheltenham using #cheltenhambestpropertyfront with an image of your entry, then DM name, contact telephone number and address.
– Alternatively, a photograph can also be given to anyone in the Perry Bishop office on the Bath Road in Cheltenham, with name, address and contact number on reverse.
All entries are to be submitted by midday Wednesday, July 28. The winner will be announced in August and photographed with Stefan Buczacki.
Gavin Wallace, director of Perry Bishop in Cheltenham, added:
“The extraordinary workers across all levels of the NHS put their lives on hold to battle the greatest crisis in its 72-year history, showing tremendous fortitude, resilience and selflessness throughout the pandemic. We wanted to find a way to recognise all those involved. We hope that the front of property displays will lift spirits and hearts as people are out and about in the Cheltenham area this summer”.
