Competition poster (res)

Our 2016 campaign is up and running. The main competition entry is in the Town Centre category of the Britain in Bloom Competition. Last year Storrington was awarded a SILVER GILT and this year’s aim is to repeat or better that. Judging will be on 7th July and with the help of our sponsors, volunteers, residents and businesses this can be achieved.

As well as the main entry, there are a number of local competitions to be judged in July and August. The theme this year is “Bright and beautiful”. Categories include a children’s wheelbarrow competition, best allotment, best business window and best business external area. Allotments and business categories do not require entry forms all will be judged automatically.

Entry forms for the residential categories: best front garden and  best community area can be collected from Joanna’s Boutique Tearoom, High Street or from The Village Florist, West Street or download it using this link Annual Competition 2016. Come on all you budding gardeners – now is the time to show off! Don’t forget you can also nominate one of your neighbours.

Here’s to a lovely warm summer with plenty of flowers, fun and laughter for everyone.

With thanks to our sponsors

And a BIG thanks to all our volunteers and local businesses without whom none of this would be possible.
