YOU can help make Blackpool Beautiful!
Enveco Environmental Services are proud to partner with Elaine Smith and Betty Bedford to co-host this year’s Blackpool In Bloom competition.
Elaine has been involved in Blackpool In Bloom for many years and took over hosting in 2008. She is now passing the baton over to Enveco.
Elaine Smith says “I am delighted that Blackpool In Bloom is going to continue in the capable hands of Diane Farley at Enveco Environmental Services. I am sure there will be many years of successes to come”.
It all started over 20 years ago by Cllr Kath Rowson and has since evolved into 11 categories of judging, capturing a wide range of community, school, businesses and home life in the town. The aim is to encourage more businesses and community groups to get involved and show off their beautiful surroundings.
Blackpool In Bloom is an incredible opportunity to bring colour, vibrancy and beauty to our streets of Blackpool after a very cold winter! And it promises to grow a sense of beauty in our local area. The good news is, YOU can help make this happen and have fun along the way.
AND IT’S FREE TO ENTER!
Cllr Cross says “Blackpool in Bloom is a fantastic event that we are proud to support. It gives residents and businesses an opportunity to create beautiful gardens, streets and even alleyways if they so choose. We should all have pride in where we live, and this is the perfect way to have some friendly competition as well as tidying up our streets and making Blackpool bloom”.
Judging will take place over several days, week commencing 3rd July. This year’s theme is Fit for a King, in celebration of King Charles III Coronation. Judging will be conducted by a team of volunteers who will be looking for the “Royalist of Displays”. Arrangements guaranteed to catch the judge’s eye could include, water conservation, variety of plants, colour, and the use of recycled items such as pots.
The 11 categories include, small and large private gardens, hanging baskets, community gardens, streets in bloom, plus categories for hotels, holiday flats, licensed premises, schools and commercial premises.
