DON’T MISS THE DATE - ENTER THE 2019 MERIT AWARDS NOW: CLOSING DATE 28 JUNE

Achieve recognition for your floral displays as they enhance our beautiful borough. We will be looking for the best of bloom at residential, community and business properties.

There are only a few days left to make sure your garden is in with a chance of a Merit Award this year: Friday June 28 is the closing date for Richmond Borough in Bloom competitions. There are 10 categories covering all aspects of bloom display, including front gardens and house frontages, estates and communal areas, pubs, shops and environmental projects.

Judging will take place immediately after the Hampton Court Flower Show, in the week commencing Monday July 8. Entries may achieve Merit Award certificates of Gold, Silver Gilt, Silver or Bronze standard and the best in each category will also receive a Borough in Bloom commemorative plaque.

Entry forms are available in all public libraries and can be downloaded here.

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.
