MAKING PLANS FOR SUMMER
Sue Hoy, head gardener at the Normanby Hall walled garden, is to be invited to be one of the judges for Brigg's best-kept garden competition this summer.
The organisers hope she will join representatives from sponsors Brigg Garden Centre on the judging panel in July.
Gardening expert Sue, who lives near Brigg, writes a very popular column which appears in the Scunthorpe Telegraph's Homes guide every Friday.
The allotment of the year competition, open to tenants of the town council-run allotments on Redcombe Lane and Grammar School Road, will also operate again this summer.
Alistair Stothard, from Barnetby, is to be invited to judge that once again, and additional prizes are being made available this year, funded by Brigg Garden Centre and the council.
Keep watching the Tuesday Brigg Extra page in the Scunthorpe Telegraph, and www.thisisbrigg.co.uk for further details of the competition as they are revealed by the town council during the spring.
