There are two group categories: Members and Novices. A Novice is someone who has been a club member for less than three years and has not won the section before. A Member is anyone who is a club member.
A trophy is presented at the AGM for the winner of each group.
Trees must be owned by the entrant for 12 months before being entered into the competition.
A tree that has been acquired and styled from scratch by the owner is eligible for entry without the 12 month rule being invoked.
Club members vote on which tree they like the most during the evening.
Category winners are presented with the trophy for 1 month, although it must be returned at the following club meeting, for the next competition.
- The winner of the Members Cup for 2015 was Simon Cook
- The winner of the Novices Cup for 2015 was Sally Evans
Roger Andrews will be running this year’s Tree of the Month competitions.
