Ashcroft gardeners honoured

Ashcroft CiB has honored another 10 local gardeners with the Scotts Miracle Gro Best Garden Selection awards.

Communities in Bloom has honored another 10 local gardeners with the Scotts Miracle Gro Best Garden Selection awards.

The recipients received a congratulatory letter from Scotts Miracle Gro, a container of fertilizer and two small booklets on lawn and garden care.  Although the Communities in Bloom members chose a total of 30 Ashcroft yards for recognition this season, there were so many more that were worthy.

It was a real pleasure to visit each and every yard and the owners to present the recognition awards.  The response of the owners was so gratifying and their pride in their yards shone through.

The recipients will showcase their signs for three weeks after which time the CiB members will pick them up for future use.

The recipients and their addresses are:

303 Bancroft St. – Ray and Doreen Rondquist;

405 Brink St. – Jim and Martina Duncan;

501 Bancroft St. – Teshima sisters

505 Bancroft St. – Marie Neufeld;

1413 Battel St. – Emily Monette;

1356 Government St. – Joyce Newbury;

612 Cedar Crescent – Mimi and Mike Kopanyas;

117 Tingley St. – Bob Rankin and Kristen Young;

900 C. Mesa Vista Drive – Lyle McAvany and Tara Fothergill; and

287 Cliff Crescent – Al and Marijke Stott

If you have a moment it is well worth it to take a tour around our lovely village and see just how much pride our residents take in their residences.
