Green-fingered Congletonian needed for Blooming Competitions
Congleton residents are being encouraged to dig deep for the Queen and Town this year and enter the Congleton in Bloom gardens competition. There will be a royal twist to the competition with schools or businesses able to enter their gardens in their own right – or in a special category for those with a Royal, Birthday or 1926 theme to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday!
Free to enter, the Congleton in Bloom Public Competitions covers three categories:
- Best Front Garden
- Best Garden for Wildlife
- Best Children’s garden display (to be entered by an under 16)
The Best Front Garden must be visible to the public from the footpath and will be judged on design, colour and quality of plants. The Best Garden for Wildlife is open to residents, businesses , organisations and schools and is about gardens where the design, choice of plants and management is especially welcoming to wildlife. The Children’s competition is open to under 16s and is about having fun! The group looks forward to some novel containers or garden creations.
Ruth Burgess, Congleton Town Council’s Streetscape Supervisor said: “Through this competition we hope to recognise some of the best gardens in Congleton. Beautiful front gardens come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have a positive impact making the town a more beautiful place to live, work and visit”
