more than 30 years, with new gardens
being entered every year.

As there is no Beautiful Towns
Awards for 2012, each entry in the gar-
den competition will count towards the
KFB entry in 2013.
The judge of the Keep Feilding Beau-
tiful (KFB) Garden Competition did not
visit all the Manawatu Community
Trust units this year as the trust is
holding its own internal competition.
The KFB committee made the
decision this year not to approach the
businesses which have generously
supported the competition with prizes
in previous years, due to the economic

Those who attended the swap-a-plant
day when the prize winners were
announced also enjoyed afternoon tea.
Mrs Gibb, who accompanied the
judge around every garden which was
entered in the competition, front and
back, said those who entered this year
can be very proud of their efforts
whether they were large or small, new
or old gardens.
There were some really great vege
table gardens and the judge did not find
it easy to pick just one winner. She was
full of praise for all the gardens.''
Philip Higgan, 10 Pukekawa Pl. The
judge said she felt she was walking
on a carpet, weed-free and beauti-
fully manicured. She was also most
impressed with all other lawns
entered in the competition.
Kath Harris, 2 Sunrise Heights.
This is a very attractive native area
which showed a good example of

A culinary delight with a good
variety of plantings.
The vegetable garden section was
well supported this year and it was
extremely difficult to find a winner,
but the judge was most impressed
with the high standard of gardening
and selection of produce.
Well done to all.
Only those streets which are
entered by the public are judged.
This year it was Cedar Cres.
Pedley Pensioners' Cup
Mrs Gibb said it was strange not to
visit every community house flat
this year, but some of the hardy
residents entered their gardens into
the Small Garden section. More
than 30 years ago KFB put that sec-
tion into the garden competition to
encourage people in the pensioner
flats to uplift their areas. The win-
ner of this cup for 2011 is Sylvia
Dexter. Her garden is a real credit
