Celebrating our Progress in Bloom winners!
We had a blooming good morning celebrating our fantastic Progress in Bloom competition winners.
Thank you for all your entries, sharing your gardens, pots and produce with us. We received 38 amazing entries and it has been a joy looking at all the wonderful and different designs, planting and garden spaces.
This year’s entries came from general needs and independent living properties in Lancashire, and supported living properties in Leeds and Doncaster. We were also really pleased to have entries from the wider community, including an entry from a volunteer group who plant, maintain and care for a garden at Leyland railway station.
We were thrilled to host the presentation and awards event again in the community at one of our independent living schemes, Bashall Grove in Farington, where tenants, residents and friends enjoyed tea and cake.
Our judges, five of our involved tenants, scored each garden out of 10, giving a total for each garden out of 50. They awarded golds to 22 gardens and 16 gardens won silver.
Jacqui De-Rose, the Group’s Chief Executive, presented the certificates and prizes of a £20 National Gardening voucher.
She said: “This year we had 38 top class entries which is fabulous. It has been great to see the results of everybody’s hard work, as it makes such a big difference to see people caring about where they live and creating a lovely environment for everyone.
“It has been great to see the community involved and encouraging others to take part.
“So well done to everyone who entered and we want to say a big thank you to our fabulous panel of judges, Stephen, Geoff, June, Dennis and David for your support.”
