Exciting News as we qualify for the RHS Britain In Bloom National Competition.
Elloughton cum Brough In Bloom, which has a team of 17 dedicated volunteer gardeners, which have won a variety of awards for their work in the Community and achieved a prestigious Gold Award by Yorkshire In Bloom in 2022, have been put forward to compete in the Britain In Bloom National Competition.
The volunteers, headed by Chairlady Coleen Gill, who has served on the team for over 20 years said, “The volunteers and I are just overwhelmed that we have now achieved the stage where we are considered worthy of competing in the national competition. It means a lot of hard work ahead, but we are all confident we are going to provide the most pristine street scene and flower displays ever.”
The RHS Britain in Bloom competition has strict entry requirements in so far as areas must be nominated, and in Elloughton cum Brough’s case this was done by Yorkshire In Bloom.
In Bloom is not just about flowers. Volunteers have to involve not just residents but also local school children and get sponsorship from local shops and businesses.
Britain In Bloom also expect the volunteers make sure the areas Street furniture are kept tidy, which includes the cleaning of signs, bins, seats and planters.
There is also a creative element that may include a new area needing cultivation and/or there may be a site for a new feature. “It’s all about ideas and we welcome suggestions from residents and if anyone can help that would be really good too” added Coleen.
Elloughton cum Brough in Bloom will be visited by the Britain In Bloom judges sometime late July/ Early August 23.
A volunteer’s work schedule is currently being drawn up, so please contact Coleen Gill for details. email@example.com – tel: 01482 666924
