Garden prize shared

COFFS HARBOUR'S Masonic Self Care Village is known for its beautiful gardens and this week the gardens became the focus of an in-house garden competition.

Judge Andrew Fraser said it was very difficult to pick a winner, so in the end he selected joint winners because the top garden was in front of four units of a two-storey building.

"The quality was fantastic," Mr Fraser said.

"I wish I had someone to do my garden at home."

The first prize was $100, but because of the judge's indecision, the organisers threw in another $100 prize.

Ailsa Morris and Bill Maker carried off the top awards in cash and vouchers, with other finalists carrying home prizes in the form of new plants.

The Masonic Village, located in Mackays Rd, backs on to a tributary of Coffs Creek and its gardens run from Mackays Rd to the creek bank.
