The Board of Onchan District Commissioners are delighted to announce the winners of the 2022 Photography Competition and Gardens Competition are Alison Cox and Mr & Mrs Dobson respectively. The winners were invited in to receive their framed certificates and prizes from the Chair, Miss Kathryn Williams prior to the Board Meeting held at Hawthorn Villa on Monday 20th February.
The winning photograph for the Photography Competition was submitted in April 2022 by Alison and was a beautiful photo snapped in Onchan Park of the boating lake. This photograph is now featured on the Onchan District Commissioners website at the top of the information about Onchan Park and is shown above. Alison was thanked by the Board for her participation in the competition and awarded with a voucher for Marks and Spencers along with her certificate for coming first.
The first place winners for the 2022 Garden Competition also joined the Chair, Miss Kathryn Williams to receive their prize. Mr and Mrs Dobson submitted photographs of their own well-tended back garden in full bloom during the summer of 2022 and were awarded with a voucher for Kirby Garden Centre along with a certificate for their efforts.
The Board of Onchan District Commissioners have agreed that due to how well received the competitions were in 2022, they would like to re-instate them for 2023. Further details will be released in the near future.
