The prizes are four, three, two guineas and one guinea respectively. They will be presented at 10 o’clock during an interval of the carnival dance tomorrow night. Mrs Schmidt, promoter of the competition, will make the presentation.

Gardens were judged by Mrs Schmidt, Mr T W Westal (sporstmanager), Mr Tom Potter (professional gardener) and Mr E R Spackman of Bata Record.

Many other gardens had been carefully tended, but the four prizewinners were outstanding.
