Of course while our projects do provide good fellowship as well as good service we also also like to have fun and fellowship at our social events.

THE SYDNEY HILLS GARDEN COMPETITION

JUDGING AND AWARDS PRESENTATION

 

 

 

The Awards night for the Sydney Hills Garden Competition was held at The Hills Shire Council Chambers on the 29th of October 2021. The current COVID-19 situation meant that the event was held later than in other years and had to be held in accordance with then current Public Health Orders.

Despite the limit on the number of attendees most of the gardeners entered in the competition were able to come and enjoy the occasion.

MC John Collignon from the Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville welcomed all attendees before introducing the State Member for Castle Hill, the Hon. Ray Williams MP, Hills Shire Mayor Dr Michelle Byrne, Competition Judge Lucia Fowler, Competition Chairman Keith Stapley and Rotary Club President Thomas Cann.

Ray Williams in his speech commented on the importance of gardening, commended the entrants on their efforts and thanked the Rotary Club for running the competition.  Mayor Dr Michelle Byrne said the Council was pleased to support the Rotary Club’s efforts and commended the gardeners for helping to maintain our reputation as The Garden Shire. Judge Lucia Fowler said that she had been amazed at the quality of the gardens in the competition and while she had spent much of her career in the North Shore our gardens were certainly comparable to the excellent gardens in that area.

Competition Chairman Keith Stapley thanked the previous speakers for their support with special thanks to the Mayor and Hills Shire Council for not only supporting the competition financially but also providing the venue for the awards night. He also thanked our other sponsors for their support in these challenging times.

The awards were then presented in accordance with COVID Safe rules with the winner and 2nd and 3rd place-getters in each category being presented personally with their awards.

 Following President Thomas Cann’s closing remarks other entrants then collected their certificates as they left the meeting.
