In 2019 Shirley Lions organised and co-ordinated their third 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 Britainís 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 2019 were :-

Infants School category

Woodlands Infants School

Our Lady of the Wayside School (Infants)

Monkspath Primary School (Infants)

Cranmore Infants School

Tidbury Green School

Year 4 and above category

Haslucks Green Junior School

Monkspath Primary School ( Juniors )

Our Lady of the Wayside School (Juniors)

St Patrick's School, Earlswood

The gardens were again judged by Jackie Barker from Notcutts Garden Centre who once again sponsored the competition.  At this year's Shirley Carnival Jackie 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"
