Welcome to Barrow Borough Council's Housing Service

The pages below should give you all the information you need to know about the Housing Service and the services we offer.

30th Anniversary of the Garden Competition

This year's competition is a special one as it's 30 years since the competition was reintroduced in 1987.  Any tenant or leaseholder can enter.  So, whether your garden is small or large, a balcony or communal area or simply pots and containers - we would love you to enter.  The competition has various categories:  Flower Garden/ Vegetable Garden/First Time Entrant/Garden by a Person with Disability/Estate or Communal Garden/Leaseholder Garden.

There are lots of prizes to be won including gardening vouchers, shields and trophies - in fact no-one will leave the special awards ceremony empty handed! 

Judging takes place mid July (entrants will be advised of the actual date).  To register to take part or if you want further information, please email ckirk@barrowbc.gov.uk(or ring Cathy on 01229 876523).
