THE first Pegswood in Bloom competition has been hailed a success.

Morpeth Mayor Phil Taylor and Town Council Clerk Gillian Turner judged the contest, which was organised by Pegswood Parish Council.

There were five category winners this year, with more to be added in future years.

Pegswood Parish Council Deputy Clerk Kevin Cassie said: “The competition went very well and there were a pleasing number of entries for its first year.

“Our thanks go to the judges, who were impressed by the quality of all the entries.

“We are looking forward to receiving more entries for next year’s competition, especially from the younger members of the community as there will be a category for gardens with children’s involvement.”
