West Farleigh in Bloom

 

 

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. In 2019 we entered both the Village category and also the Churchyard category. In both we reached Silver medals.

 

We are entering the same 2 categories again in 2020 and are still aiming to better ourselves, at least a Silver Gilt this year!

Kent Wildlife Trust

 

We liaise with the local Kent Wildlife Trust alot in our efforts to support the environment in our village.

 

We have worked together to designate a large green expance managed by the Highways agency as a 'Wilder Verge'

They are also promoting Wild About Gardens which we are embracing. More can be found out here

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.
