West Farleigh in Bloom

 

West Farleigh entered the Village category of South and South East in Bloom for the first time in 2018 and we received a Bronze certificate which we were all very pleased with.

 

In 2019 we have once again entered the Village cateogry and also the Churchyard category additionally. We look forward to a colourful year ahead (and hopefully Silver!)

 

2018 Sunflower competition Results

 

We ran 2 competitions throughout the village in 2018, inclusing tallest sunflower and best display:

 

Holly French from The Hollow won the tallest sunflower competition with a flower that reached 2.74meters tall.

 

Best Display sunflower competition was judged by Jon fenton, head gardener at Smiths Hall and Lifeline columnist. Gabby King won the with her sunflowers all growing up the telegraph pole outside her house.

 

Both won trophies to keep and commemorate their fantastic achievements.

Feb: What we will be judged on

Posted on 10th March, 2018

The West Farleigh in Bloom initiative for 2018 has attracted a great deal of interest with 13 people keen to get involved to date – more are always welcome (email editor@thefarleighs.com).

 

We have entered the South and South East in Bloom ‘Village’ category and are to expect a visit from the judges in July this year.

  • The judges will be looking for horticultural impact (design, colour, appropriate choice of plants) and horticultural practice (cultivation, maintenance, sustainability, new planting) in residential and community areas. These could be Church grounds, car parks, rural businesses such as pubs and green spaces such as verges, parks and open spaces.
  • The competition also aims for Environmental responsibility so wildlife areas, natural habitat, local heritage, litter, dog fouling and ensuring there is pride in the landscape.
  • Finally Community Participation, engaging a wide range of people, awareness and understanding, engagement with young people and other community groups and press coverage.
