The marina won the business category in the Braunston Village Gardens Association's Annual Gardens Competition 2021.

Tim Coghlan, director of Braunston Marina, said: "Despite cutting down on our garden maintenance budget – with the huge drop in customer and visitors due to Covid-19 – I was surprised and delighted to learn that we had still won the Dennett Cup in the category ‘Businesses not on the High Street or The Green’ – of which there are more than 20.

"The reason for our continued success is our green-fingered groundsman Ian Norris, who also acts as our harbour master."

Kate Mawer, chairperson of Braunston Village Gardens Association, said to the team: "Thank you for all the work you have put into your garden this year and so adding to the enjoyment of the floral displays in Braunston."
