The winners of this year’s Sydney Hills Garden Competition and Presentation Evening have been officially announced.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the competition, which was held as part of 2018 The Hills Shire Orange Blossom Festival, aimed to recognise excellent gardens in the Hills Shire, as well as foster a sense of community pride.
“The calibre of this year’s entries was just outstanding,” Mayor Byrne said.
“We live in an incredible region, with equally spectacular gardens.
“Just driving around The Hills Shire, you will see the hard work and dedication which goes into maintaining some of these outstanding properties.
“Thank you to the judges and the Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville for creating a special evening which brings families, friends, hobbyist and keen gardeners together to celebrate the significant and beautiful contributions made by our talented locals.
“What they have done is gratefully appreciated and it’s an honour to publicly recognise each of the winners and finalists on their long-term commitment to the betterment of the region,” Mayor Byrne added.
The Hills Garden Competition was founded in 1959 and has been running in the region for more than 50 years.
