2017 Wales in Bloom Campaign

This year Wales in Bloom celebrates its 50th Anniversary.  To acknowledge this milestone we plan to have a dinner the evening before the Awards Ceremony.  This will be held in the same venue as the Awards Ceremony.  This is advance notice of the event and further details will be communicated again after our next Committee Meeting.  Please keep an eye on your mail inbox for further details.

The Forms for the 2017 Wales in Bloom Campaign, both for the main categories, which includes the School Gardens, and It’s Your Neighbourhood are now available on our website at www.walesinbloom.org.uk  .  I will also be emailing previous entrants with a copy of the forms.

This year we are also piloting two new categories, Healthcare Establishments and Allotments.  The details for these will be finalized at our Committee Meeting on 20 January.  If you are interested in entering either of these two categories then please email me at walesinbloom@yahoo.co.uk and I will forward further details when these are available.
