Hedgehog Gutterbrush Competition

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013


Hedgehog Gutter Brush has launched a competition to win a fantastic holiday for two to Australia including air fares, accommodation and spending money worth up to £5,000.

Hedgehog Gutter Brush is a simple yet effective device that helps protect and maintain gutters by preventing leaves, twigs and other debris from entering the gutter – while allowing rainfall to flow freely through them.
The competition has been launched to highlight the importance of preparing and protecting your property for the onset of autumn and winter when blocked gutters and drains can result in expensive fees if professionals are required to clear them.
Hedgehog is manufactured from hard wearing UV resistant polypropylene brush filaments spun around a steel wire spine. It’s virtually indestructible, requires no maintenance and will keep gutters clear year-on-year.
The clever device automatically adapts to the shape of almost any type of gutter, fits around corners and over down pipe outlets and can be simply and quickly fitted in just minutes – without the need for specialist installation.
Hedgehog Gutter Brush retails at just £14.99 for a standard 4mtr x 100mm brush and is available in black, brown or white. The product comes with a 10 year guarantee and is available from most good Builders Merchants and DIY outlets nationwide.
The competition is available to enter until 31st December 2013 with every purchase of a genuine Hedgehog Gutter Brush. Proof of purchase is required and the competition can be entered by simply logging on to:
The winner will be drawn at random and announced on talkSPORT Radio in January 2014.

Design a garden competition

A competition for a garden design!
This is a competition to design a family-friendly garden, based on an 8m x 8m flat site, which may be viewed by visitors from 2 or 3 sides. A backdrop should be considered. It may include an area of excavation but it should be no deeper than 0.5m.

The competition is not open to professional garden designers or gardeners – only amateurs. To qualify as an amateur, individuals should not earn more than 50% of their annual income from garden design and/or gardening and should not hold a formal garden design qualification.

There’s a list of things you’re not allowed and a list of plants you can use!

I’m quite tempted although I have never tried anything like this before!

Big Wildlife Garden competition!
Entry is free, and prizes will include a year’s membership of both the Royal Horticultural Society, and your local Wildlife Trust, plus attendance at a wildlife gardening masterclass at the Hampton Court Flower Show.

200 words maximum and 2-6 photos needed. The deadline is 20 May 2012.

Small Residential – (Assume your garden is small if it is 50 sq m in size, the
size of approximately four car parking spaces)
Large Residential (Assume your garden is large if it is more than 50 sq m in size,
larger than approximately four car parking spaces.)

New Residential – If you live in a new house that was completed in the past
two to three years, within a larger development of houses, then this category
is for you. Chances are your garden may have started off as, or still be, a
blank canvas. There may be a bit of lawn or even just soil. It’s what
you do to improve it that will make a difference to wildlife.

Any school, college or nursery garden managed with wildlife in mind can enter.

Are you involved with a garden collectively managed by a group of people in
your community? For example, a street or neighbourhood garden, a garden for
a place of worship or for a prison? If so then this category is for you.

Many businesses own land. Do you have a wildlife garden – or better still,
could you create a new one? If so, this category will be for you.
