Chatham Maritime Trust would like to thank those residents that entered the recent photographic competition, we received some fantastic pictures. There were four categories: Nature and Landscaping, Architecture, Adventure and Family.

The winners were:

Nature & Landscaping category

Steve Gargano of Eastview with his “Basin 2 Seagull Madness”. Steve won Odeon Cinema tickets and a voucher.

Architecture category

Alan Bennett of Rivermead with his “St. Mary’s Island Basin Edge Properties View”. Alan’s prize is a tour and tasting at the Copper Rivet Distillery.

Adventure category

Jacob Browne of Redshank Road with his “Battle of Medway Fireworks”. Jacob’s prize is four sessions of watersports activities at Basin 2.

There were no entries for the “Family” category so this was declared null and void. Congratulations to the winners; their photographs will feature in the next edition of the Trust’s newsletter, the Maritime Messenger.

Our thanks to the Odeon Cinema, Chatham Maritime, the Copper Rivet Distillery and Arethusa/Shaftesbury Young People for sponsoring the categories.

We would like to thank residents for submitting their photos and we are delighted to announce the first prize winners who each received £100 of Dobbies vouchers.

The winners were:

Best Front Garden

Mr & Mrs Bavister in The Fishing Village. They were awarded £100 of Dobbies vouchers. Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up. Their details featured in the winter edition of the Maritime Messenger 2016.

The runners-up in each category received a subscription to a Home or Garden magazine of their choice.

The judges were pleased with the quality of the submissions and on a recent tour of the Island they were so impressed with other gardens that were not entered in the competition they decided to award a prize to the front garden that impressed them the most.
