The Russley Village award-winning gardeners, Shaeron Holmes and Amanda Riordan, as well as the village residents have once again been recognised for excellence in their craft.
The pair received an array of prizes at the recent Christchurch Beautifying Association garden awards, including 11 certificates and the Peter Lawrence Challenge Trophy, in the Retirement Villages and Rest Homes Category. Adding to their extensive Trophy cupboard.
With their green thumbs and passion for horticulture, Shaeron and Amanda have both won numerous awards over the years from the Canterbury Beautifying Association and Community Pride Awards, for the beautifully maintained village gardens.
The pair will soon be sponsoring a trophy of their own to add to the Beautifying Association Awards. Fellow co-workers Isaac Anderson and Grant Ilton have also played an instrumental role in their success, supporting them with their expertise and resources. Together, the four have formed a formidable team that has taken the gardening community by storm.
The Christchurch Street and Garden Awards were set up over 70 years ago to encourage civic pride and acknowledge those who have contributed to maintaining the image of Christchurch as the Garden City by beautifying their streets and gardens.
