Last Chance to Enter Clackmannanshire in Bloom Competition

Published on:


June 2016

The closing date for the Council's annual garden competition is nearing and the county's green-fingered community groups are being encouraged to show off their horticultural handiwork.

Entries will be accepted until the closing day of Thursday 30th June.

The Clackmannanshire in Bloom competition is divided into two sections one for Schools and the other for Community Projects, Allotments and Council Tenants.

Provost Derek Stewart said: "This is an ideal opportunity for the community groups of Clackmannanshire to show off their gardening skills and to recognise how fantastic the area looks."

This year's independent judge is Jacqueline McKenna, Stirling University's Grounds Maintenance Manager. She will be judging the Community Projects, Allotments and Council Tenants gardens in August.

The efforts made by our communities will be celebrated and shared at a networking forum event to be held towards the end of the year.
The judges focus will be on year round horticultural and gardening achievements, environmental responsibility and community participation, with recognition being given for best practice.

Exemplar work in areas such as community growing, biodiversity and sustainability will also be rewarded.

Entry forms are available to download from ClacksWeb or by phoning 01259 45000 or my emailing
