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

Village Entry 2020 

 

Due to Covid-19, the competition this year is being judged remotely by a powerpoint presentation on our efforts rather than a face to face visit by the judges.

The judges visited West Farleigh on 4th July 2019 to see and access our efforts. They were given a presentation ahead of their visit which is attached below.

May: 2020 Entry

Posted on 4th August, 2020
The good news is that South East in Bloom will still go ahead this year but all entries will need to be submitted for judging as Powerpoint. There is going to be a special award to the group or community who have been the most innovative under the current circumstances. To this end we hope you have been enjoying our daily photos on the Farleighs Facebook page showcasing the lovely spring flowers around the village – particularly for those who are self-isolating at home and missing it all. If you have enjoyed seeing the photos we would really appreciate if you could let us know by emailing bloom@thefarleighs.co.uk for us to submit to the judges. The favourite one so far. which is on the front cover, got 71 likes. 
We also posted an idea for making a bee home for children to do at home. If you have made oneplease let us knowor if you would like to make one for our designated wildlife area at the top of Teston Lane that would be fantastic. You can find instructions on Utube “Eco How: How to makebeehome”.
One of our villagers has been volunteering for the Bloom team as part of his Duke of Edinburgh award and has been working hard on clearing areas of the wildlife area and planting some flowers for which we are very grateful.
