We welcome a challenge. Big or small
A show garden does await.
For the hard-work of all
A display we set to create.

From park leader to volunteer
Together, the challenge we embark.
A fantastic group. A matching atmosphere
The creativity amongst us did spark.

The plans laid out. Simple procedures
Build a garden as cheap as we can.
An array of flowers. A couple of features
A spectacular display. Worthy of Tatton.

A delightful moment.
Our garden was shown.
An overwhelming moment.
Our garden gifted with gold.
