A GREEN-fingered pensioner from Lower Peover has been crowned winner of Weaver Val Housing Trust’s annual garden competition for the second year running.

Walter Sant, 86, of Swan Grove, won Best Overall Garden in the annual competition, which celebrates the hard work and effort of the trust’s customers.

His range of hanging baskets and variety of vegetables clinched the win for Walter for the second year in a row.

Wife Barbara said: “Walter has done really well and it made his day when he received the letter to say he had won.”

The gardens were judged by Sarah Lawless, Weaver Vale Housing Trust contract officer, and Martin Neighbour, contracts manager for The Landscape Group, the grounds maintenance contractors for the trust.

Four gardeners made the final cut and each winner received a framed certificate and £200 shopping vouchers for B&Q or Love to Shop.

Steve Jennings, chief executive of Weaver Vale Housing Trust, said: “Each year the standard of entries gets higher and we always enjoy seeing the huge variety of flowers, shrubs and vegetables our customers cultivate.

“Great looking gardens can really transform a community and we want to thank all our customers who take great care of their outdoor space, no matter how large or small their gardens may be.”
