Community Prize: Shelton Court
The winner by far this Year is Shelton Court.
The judges were very impressed by the well maintained standard and pride many of the more able residents take in maintaining all the borders and beds surrounding the flats. The border contains many flowering herbaceous and bedding plants, all in full summer colour, very few weeds to be found. Dotted around the flats are colourful hanging baskets. Although MK Council maintain the grass cutting, the rest of the gardens are down to the more able bodied residents.
This award is a small acknowledgement of all their hard work.
Special Award: The Friends of Woburn Sands Railway Station
As we all know the Station survived Doctor Beeching in the
1960's, but now looms an even greater threat: the East West Railway. For the
present, however, a small group of dedicated people work hard to maintained four
full wooden barrels and seven colourful wall mangers on both platforms. Water
is supplied by collecting it in barrels off the shelters. When the judges visited the station it was ablaze with colourful flowering plants – a credit to all
