Chartered Institute of Horticulture’s Young Horticulturist of the Year 2016 Grand Final News Release

Dear All

news release (57)

As you will see from the attached news release, we had a wonderful YHoY Grand Final weekend in Dublin in the capable hands of the CIH Irish Branch and their main sponsors Bord Bia. The late Percy Thrower’s daughter, Ann Kirkham, of the Shropshire Horticultural Society, presented the prizes.

 

We were also very privileged to be able to visit the garden of Helen Dillon on the Sunday – not to be missed.

 

Lawrence Wright, the South East Branch contestant, won by a close margin and will go on to use his £2500  travel bursary to further his career.

 

Our Northern Branch contestant, Sally Newbrook, took sixth place at her first attempt and we look forward to her competing again in 2017.

 

I would like to thank our Regional Sponsors, the North of England Horticultural Society and Stockbridge Technology Centre for their continued support and we can now look forward to the 2017 competition that will be launched in the autumn.

 

Please feel free to forward this news release to your own contacts.

 

Best wishes
