GREEN-FINGERED residents are invited to enter an annual gardening competition.

Ainsworth in Bloom, organised by the Ainsworth Community Association, is set to return for summer 2018.

Entry forms have been delivered to every property in the village urging contestants to apply before the Saturday, June 30 deadline.

There are two categories in this year's competition — most attractive hanging basket or planter, and most attractive front garden.

Judging will take place between July 21 and 28.

Prizes have kindly been donated by Arthur Lane Nurseries, based in Arthur Lane.

If anyone needs an application form, please message Jane Lees, one of the organisers, via the Ainsworth Facebook pages.
