From the Leigh Journal:

“In early Spring the Howe Bridge residents’ group launched a vegetable competition.
It wasn’t to see who could can grow the biggest marrow but to get locals of all ages to grow their own in recycled containers.

Marrows, potatoes and courgettes sprouted in kettles, shopping bags and pans when competitors brought their produce for judging at St Michael’s summer fete.”

They go onto say:

“Councillor Loudon said: “This was a difficult but pleasant competition to judge. Everyone tried hard and some of the re-cycled containers were wonderful. My sincere thanks to Bulldog Tools.

“The community worked hard encouraging people to get involved. Thanks to everyone who took part.”

We’re very glad to have been able to provide the provide the prizes for the competition. We hope the Bridgers Community Group continue to find new uses for old things for a long time to come!
