A competition has been launched to find a dazzling designer to create some commemorative gates for a new Platinum Jubilee Garden at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.
The garden, at the centre of the showground, will honour Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne. It will feature some of Her Majesty’s favourite plants and shrubs, as well as others named in her honour.
Shows manager, Jane Edwards, said: ‘We’re delighted our Platinum Jubilee Garden will become a permanent feature garden for visitors to enjoy for many years. The plants, shrubs and trees in the garden have been carefully selected either because they’ve been named for Her Majesty the Queen or because they are particular favourites of hers.
‘The garden will be planted and cared for by our head gardener, along with our two apprentice gardeners who are studying landscaping at Pershore College and plan to use this special project as part of their coursework towards their landscaping qualifications.’
Entrants are being asked to create a memorable design for the gates, which will form the entrance to the garden. It’s hoped the winner will cleverly honour the Queen’s exceptional service and devotion to the country, Commonwealth and the world.
The gates will be made of metal and fixed to dry-stone walls around the garden.
Proposed designs should be submitted by Tuesday 19 April 2022. Entry forms can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
