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 hillsboroughforum@live.co.uk. 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.
