Councillor Tommy Williams, convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Housing and Community Safety Policy Board, said: “This competition is always one of the highlights of the summer and it’s great to be able to reward those Renfrewshire residents who bring a splash of colour to our communities.

“The standard of the entries seems to get better and better every year and it’s obvious that many of our tenants take great pride in their gardens.

This competition is open to Renfrewshire Council tenants and ex-Scottish Homes tenants.

Owner-occupiers residing in ex-Council and ex-Scottish Homes housing stock may also enter but are judged in a separate category.

Entry forms are available from local housing offices or online at  Entries must be received by Friday 24 June.

Competition judging will take place on Thursday 28 July.
