Christine Wilkie is one of four battling it out in the Grand Designs Live competition

A garden designer from Wembley is celebrating after reaching the finals of a prestigious competition.

Christine Wilkie is one of four finalists in the Grand Designs Live competition.

The contest, which is based on the Channel 4 TV series aims to find winners across a range of categories including garden design and home improvement.

Ms Wilkie, who lives in Norval Road, has been shortlisted for her garden design creation which will now be judged by a panel including host of the TV show Kevin Mcleod at the Excell Arena in May.

The 52-year-old, who only took up the hobby in 2008, told the Times: “I’m really delighted to have been selected it’s a huge honour.”

The design, called Glow, had to meet Grand Designs’ ethos of contemporary, inspirational, ethical/environmental.
