2019 MERIT AWARDs - WINNERS ANNOUNCED

SEE THE FULL LIST OF WINNERS HERE

From one of the largest number of entries ever received, Richmond Borough in Bloom judges have awarded 146 Merit Awards this year across the 10 categories covering front gardens, residential frontages, estates, community buildings, pubs and shop fronts.

They are all invited to attend a celebration evening at York House on October 1, when the Mayor, Cllr Nancy Baldwin, will present each of them with a commemorative certificate.

Pictured below is the garden of Julie Burdon, Barnes Avenue, the winner of the Front Gardens category who has also won the Richmond & Twickenham Times award for the Best Residential Floral Display.

Richmond Borough in Bloom, founded in 1990, is an independent community group committed to enhancing the borough’s natural environment for the benefit of all who live, work or visit here.

In addition to our annual Merit Awards gardening competitions open to all resident and businesses and our Best Village in Bloom competition to involve the whole community, we also run a floral art competition for children and one for schools to encourage best use of their grounds.

This busy programme is organised by a committee of volunteers representing the different areas of the borough. There are sometimes vacancies, so if you would like to take part in the year’s planning and implementation we would welcome your call.

Our efforts contribute largely to the outstanding success of the borough’s participation in London in Bloom and Britain in Bloom. We thank you for your support which has made this possible.
