Queen's Golden Jubilee In Caithness
HALKIRK GOLDEN JUBILEE GARDEN COMPETITION
One of the events organised by the committee responsible for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee celebrations in Halkirk was a garden competition which was open to anyone residing in the Parish of Halkirk
It had been intended to have the gardens judged 2 - 3 times over the summer, but however, due to a time and weather factor, the gardens were only judged once.
The organisers were a little disappointed that they received less entries than anticipated but that did not detract from the winning entries which were judged under two categories.
Judge Mike Potts from Thurso awarded prizes to the following:
Senior Citizen Garden:
1st equal David Andrews, Egton, 16 Sinclair Street, Halkirk
Mrs. C. Johnston, 44 Sinclair Street, Halkirk
1st Mrs. P. Crawford, Avondell, George Street, Halkirk
2nd Mrs. L. Johnston, 12 Church Street, Halkirk
3rd Mr. A. Brotherston, Bridge Street, Halkirk
Winner Overall: Mrs. P. Crawford, Avondell, George Street, Halkirk.
The committee are grateful to all the sponsors for their support:
Bond Electrical, Halkirk
Oscar Sutherland, Halkirk
G & P. Sutherland, Harpsdale
D & J. Mowat, Halkirk
M. Potts, Thurso
Finally a grateful thanks to Mike Potts for all his help, advice and guidance as well as giving up his valuable time to act as judge.
