Garden Competition Entry Form 2017

No need to print a form.  If you haven’t got a printer then just send the following details by post or email.  (postal and email addresses below)





And state if you are entering one of both of the categories.



The winners of each category will hold one of our individual, stunning and very special hand carved trophies for the year – oh and there are vouchers for prizes too !  Trophies will be presented on 22nd July at Sharnfold Farm before the scarecrow festival ceremonial bonfire.
