Green Fingers at the ready for competition time!

Hillsborough Forum has now launched the Hillsborough in Bloom Competition for local people as part of neighbourhood-wide activities taking place over the next six months.

Entries can be for any of the categories and there are prizes, to be given out at a gala awards ceremony to be held in October at the Garrison Hotel.

Categories are:

  • Best Small Garden – This can be front or back
  • Best container planting – be it hanging basket, tub, window box or even an unusual planter made from something different (such as an old boot)
  • Best retail business display
  • Best Public House/restaurant/hotel
  • Greenest place of worship
  • Schools / nurseries – show those little green fingers
  • The bloom photo competition – The theme for this is ‘community’ so email a picture representing community in Hillsborough

Entry forms can be found in Ruby’s Cafe, the Transport Interchange and Teddybear Maker. Alternatively, contestants can email their entry to Include name, address, contact number and the category entered.

Judging will commence in late July and there will be an invite to the awards gala in October.
