CUMNOCK and Doon Valley residents are being invited into entering East Ayrshire’s Garden Competition.

The annual competition, which has been running for 82 years, is open to anyone in the area with a garden, no matter the size – as long as it is looked after by themselves.

There are seven individual categories including Best Private Garden, Best Vegetable Garden and so on.

Applications are available online and paper copies can be collected from your local council building.

The deadline is Friday, July 26.
