Campaign Co-ordinator

Wales in Bloom Campaign 2015

A big thank you to all who took part in the Campaign last year. Whilst we recognise the difficulties facing Local Authorities and understand your support may have ceased we want to promote new initiatives which may be of interest. The introduction of an Urban Community, City or Town Centre categories and a revised School Garden competition. There will be less influence on floral attraction with an emphasis on environmental, community and general horticultural interest with a slightly amended criteria for these new ideas.
