Growing Together 2020

Growing Together 2020

Coronavirus has meant our ‘Annual Gardens competition’ which we run with Oldham Council has been cancelled, but we still wanted to recognise the efforts of our green-fingered First Choice Homes Oldham (FCHO) customers, so this year, we’re bringing our gardening competition online!

Growing Together Online 2020 will consist of the same principle as previous years but with an adapted process so our customers can get involved while staying safe.


There are six categories:

  • Front garden
  • Back garden
  • Patios and containers
  • Windows and hanging baskets
  • Vegetable or wildlife gardens
  • Children’s creative gardens

How to enter

To enter, all you need to do is complete the below form or, if you prefer, email up to four photos of your entry to, telling us which category you are entering and your name, address and telephone number.

All entries must be submitted by 5pm on Monday 3 August 2020.

If you or someone you know would like to enter but you haven’t got the equipment to take photos or are struggling to enter online, please call us on 0161 393 5926 or email the above address and leave your name, address and contact number and we’ll be in touch to discuss how we can help.

Please note – this competition is open to customers of First Choice Homes Oldham only.


Growing Together Online – 2020 is open for entries from 9am on Monday 6 July until 5pm Monday 3 August 2020.


  • Entrants must be 18 years old or over
  • All photographs must be of your own garden or green area, or on behalf of one of our customers. If we find any entries not to be truthful, they will be disqualified


Due to coronavirus, sadly there will be no presentation this year, but all winners will be notified personally via the team and on our website and social media week commencing Monday 31 August 2020.
