It was our pleasure, once again, to be invited to help judge the Lincolnshire Gardens Trust Photographic Competition for 2020.

Despite the limitations placed on gardens opening to the public for charity during the pandemic there was an excellent number of entries.

The highly commended and winning entries in each category received their awards by post this year as the AGM in November was held virtually.
