Cambridgeshire snappers wanted: BBC presenters to judge photography competition
TWO stars of BBC gardening programmes will judge entrants for a garden centre’s first photography competition.
Christine Helen Walkden - star of BBC’s Christine’s Garden and regular of The One Show - and Gardener’s World presenter and Sun gardening correspondent Peter Seabrook will judge Notcutts Garden Centre’s contest.
The competition is open to two age groups - adults and under-18s. It is hoped that amateur photographers and gardeners alike across Cambridgeshire will submit their photos which capture the ‘Magic of Gardening’.
Andy King, Notcutts’ chief executive officer, said: “Every day at Notcutts we receive feedback from our customers telling us what an inspiring place their garden can be; their own little unique piece of paradise.
“With this competition we want to capture those awe inspiringly beautiful moments; a butterfly landing on lavender, a Floribunda rose coming into bloom, or a spectacular urban space.

“A picture can be so evocative, taking people right to that place and time, and we are very keen for amateur photographers of all ages and gardening ability to get out there and show us what they have got.”
