Best dressed


After a hiatus of two years the Best Street Competition has returned to Alexandra.

Keep Alexandra and Clyde Beautiful committee members and judges Lenore Townsend and Allan Johnston (pictured) awarded best cul-de-sac to Mayfair Grove and best street to Kamaka Cres.

A congratulatory certificate is being given out to each house, and a sign has been erected at the entry of the streets which will stay in place for a year.

The criteria was not simply about the biggest or most expensive; instead it was about the collective pride each resident had in keeping their gardens looking beautiful, Mrs Townsend said.
