ASH In Bloom 2010

Following on from Ash's successes in 2008 and 2009 in both Guildford in Bloom and South and South East in Bloom, Ash Parish Council are holding our very own ASH In Bloom competition. It is intended that ASH In Bloom will encourage residents and schools to make Ash Parish a brighter and greener place in which to live.

So why not join in yourself or nominate a neighbour, friend or other Parish Resident and enter one of the six competition categories and maybe win yourself or nominee a prize.

Judging will take place during July and entry to all categories is FREE. the judges will be particularly looking for use of environmental practices such as peat free soil, composting, water butts and wormeries.

All winners will be invited to attend a presentation ceremony at the Ash Centre on 16th September 2010, where there will be an opportunity to meet other category winners, sponsors andthe judges.

So dig out those gardening gloves and tools or go potty with those plants and get growing for ASH In Bloom.
