Annual Floral Competition
We will all be spending more time in our gardens over the coming months, so we would like to continue with the competition though we will judge it in a different way if necessary. Judging day will remain as planned: Wednesday 15th July and we will be asking you to submit photographs of your garden either digitally or printed.
We are aware that this may well be open to abuse, so we will be acknowledging winners of each category differently too. We do not think we will be presenting shields this year, certificates and window stickers seem more appropriate. These details, however, will be finalised in June.
Closing date for the competition is 30th June and we would ask you to let us know by that date if you wish to enter. You can do this either by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or telephoning Hazel on 07947 404403 We will not be using a form this year as we will not be visiting your garden.
Details about how and when to submit the photographs will be decided later. All those who have said they wish to enter will be sent full details at the beginning of July.
To help you prepare for the competition the categories remain the same with the addition of our new bee and butterfly friendly one:
A* MOST FLORALLY ATTRACTIVE STREET
B* MOST FLORALLY ATTRACTIVE PART STREET ( MIN. 3 PROPERTIES)
*IF THERE ARE INSUFFICIENT ENTRIES FOR CLASSES “A” & “B” THEY WILL BE COMBINED.

D BEST HANGING BASKET OR CONTAINER AT PRIVATE RESIDENCE
E DISPLAY OF WILD FLOWERS TO ENCOURAGE BEES AND BUTTERFLIES (new)
