2013 was a fantastic year for the garden, as we judged to have "The Best Kept Garden" in Greystoke and District Parish.
In both 2010 and 2011 we were placed 2nd in the annual "Greysoke Village in Bloom" competition, however this year (2013) we managed to go one better!

Apparantly we were entered inthe "Business Section" of Cumbria in Bloom by one of the garden judges, but nothing came of that one - but who knows what will happen in 2014 and we'll keep our fingers crossed!
