Celebrity Stefan Buczacki meets Perry Bishop competition winner

Throughout the summer, green fingered enthusiasts across Gloucestershire have been busily sowing seeds, planting, watering, and tending imaginative horticultural creations in the hope of winning the 'Most Attractive Property Front Thanking the NHS competition'.

Organised by the Cheltenham branch of Perry Bishop estate agents, the competition set out to thank the NHS and key workers for their tireless work during Covid.

Webbs Garden Centre sponsored the competition, offering the winner a prize of £250 worth of vouchers to be spent at their store.

TV celebrity, horticulturalist, and author Stefan Buczacki met the winner, Caroline Caine from Lypiatt Street, who entered her rainbow bath and themed front garden.

She received a winner's certificate, £250 worth of Webbs garden vouchers, along with a personalised and signed book from Stefan, 'Garden Natural History', which explores the relationship between wildlife and gardens. In true English style she then invited Mr Buczacki for tea and pastries.

He said: "What a privilege it has been to be involved in the NHS Property Front Competition. Plants of course have always been important in my life, while the NHS has over the past eighteen months proved itself one of this country's most cherished assets.

"With two hospital consultants in my own family, I have been close to seeing how much has been sacrificed by so many to keep us safe. It was a delight to judge the splendid entries which proved once again Cheltenham's reputation as one of the great floral towns of England. My congratulations to all who entered".

Gavin Wallace, director of Perry Bishop in Cheltenham added: "We were delighted to receive so many uplifting entries for the Most Attractive Property Front competition.

"The winner, Caroline, worked rainbow colours into her display in a very clever way. We hope that the displays have lifted spirits and hearts whilst people have been out and about in the Gloucestershire area this summer. It has felt like a very fitting tribute to thank NHS and key workers for their tireless work".
