As the weather hots up and gardens continue to burst into life, green-fingered gardeners and pub landlords are being reminded to enter our two great Tamworth in Bloom competitions.
As part of the 2016 Tamworth in Bloom campaign, we are once again holding two separate competitions – one for gardeners and one for pubs.
A prize of £100 worth of gardening vouchers is up for grabs in both competitions.
The gardens competition is open to everyone living in the borough, whether you’re an experienced gardener, a complete beginner or somewhere in between. Entries are welcome from all types of gardens – huge plots with a rolling lawn and endless flower beds, a small square of grass, a hanging basket or a window box.
Last year’s winners were Barbara and Jack Sippetts of Glascote, who took the top prize for their stunning garden at their home in Clifford Street.
The pubs competition is open to every pub in the borough. Last year, the top prize was won by Olivers in Lower Gungate, which took top prize for its beautiful hanging baskets at the front of the pub and in the courtyard.
To enter either of the competitions, this year’s garden competition, just take a picture of your garden or pub displays and either email it to Garden Competition on firstname.lastname@example.org or drop a copy in to reception at Marmion House.
The closing date for entries for both competitions is 5pm on Monday August 1st, with entries being judged during the following week.
This year’s Tamworth in Bloom theme is Be Prepared to Bloom, as we team up with Tamworth Cubs to help them celebrate the 100th birthday of the national organisation.
We’re aiming to scoop gold in the Small City category for the seventh year running – and want gardeners and publicans throughout the borough to get involved in the campaign.
