Children from local schools in ME10 submitted their designs. 

There were 729 applications to design the flowerbed, and the winner’s design will be planted on the St Michael’s road bed in Sittingbourne. 

The Council contractors, Blenwood will then plant up the bed this Spring.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member responsible for the environment said: “My congratulations to all 3 winners. The flower bed competition is a great idea that gets children thinking about nature and design. I can’t wait to see the finished article when the gardeners have finished planting this Summer. I’m sure it will look wonderful.”
