In 2023 Shirley Lions organised and co-ordinated their fourth gardening competition for schools in Shirley. The aim of the competition is to support gardening projects in our schools. With more and more gardens disappearing from Britain's streets, hopefully we can also inspire today's school children to take up gardening outside of their school and understand the eco and sustainability benefits of gardening.

The entrants in the different categories for 2023 were :-

Infants School category

Streetsbrook Nursery & Infants School

Our Lady of the Wayside School

Burman Infants School

Blossomfield Infants School

Year 4 and above category

Dickens Heath Community Primary School

The gardens were judged by Shirley Lions own gardening experts, Lions Martin and Gillian Conlon. Notcutts Garden Centre once again sponsored the competition and provided the winner's prizes. At this year's Shirley Carnival our Youth Committee Chair, Lion Jackie Culliford announced the winners of each category and presented them both with a £100 Garden Voucher. All the entrants were presented with a certificate and a "Shirley Lion"
