A COUPLE have collected a neat prize after their garden was hailed the top of the plots.
East Durham Homes’ (EDH) search for the best kept garden has seen Kenneth and Syliva Errington from Peterlee presented with £50 of vouchers to spend on it, with another £25 shopping card added to their award.
The competition, sponsored by local company Daisy Landscaping, was launched to showcase the hard work of tenants.
Kenneth said: “I couldn’t believe it when I found out we’d won the competition.
“It was our daughter and grandson who entered us into the competition and we actually bet them we wouldn’t win but we have.
“It has taken us around seven years to get the garden how we want it and we try to spend a bit of time each day working on it.”
