The winners of the Burgess Hill in Bloom Christmas Lights Competition 2020 were Hestia Place and their spokesman Jordan Sutton. They received a lot of compliments from the judges for their fine lights display along the entire close. This beautiful display could be seen twinkling from Kingsway, which added to their attraction.
They won the ‘Cathy Barnett Cup’ for all their efforts.
David and Mandy Mason in Orchard Road won their individual award, the ‘Jo Toase Trophy’, with their wonderful garden lights focused on a giant Snowman, designed and hand made by David. It had real wow factor!
B. H. I. B. judges toured the whole town and were very impressed with all the extra efforts by Burgess Hill home owners during this COVID Pandemic year.
Deserving special mention were The Holt, Barnside Avenue, Burners Close, The Croft off Unicorn Way. Large palms decorated Quarry Close, neighbours in Station Road and old favourites Orchard Road Crescent and Condor Way, with Temple Grove and Maple Drive, shone out with their decorated gardens. Woodpecker Crescent, Sparrow and Packham Way, Farnley, Manor Road, St. Andrews, Golden Hill, Wyvern and Rolfe Way were also worth a mention.
Some residents in St. Peters and Station Road collected donations for charity and some featured in videos on Facebook.
Thanks to all Burgess Hill residents who contributed to making the town light up amid the doom and gloom of this year.
We hope to have a Spring Party (Covid willing), to present the winners with their prizes.
