We’ve been busy promoting the Sunflower and Scarecrow Festival by seed planting at our tenant meetings and giving out lots of free sunflower seeds at community events across the country.

Some of you have proudly told us that the little sunflowers are growing nicely already.

It might be time for a bigger pot and some fresh compost if they are to grow really tall.

It’s not too late to get a free pack of sunflower seeds to grow at home. You can get in touch by email at community@progressgroup.org.uk, and we will send you one in the post.

It has also been great to hear that many of you have been busy making your scarecrow plans. We really cannot wait to see your ideas turn into wonderful scarecrows for the festival!

You can apply for both the scarecrow contest and the tallest sunflower competition any time between now and Sunday, 4 September 2022, at 11.59pm. You can do this by emailing community@progressgroup.org.uk with your photo and contact details.

For more information, visit www.progressgroup.org.uk/bloom or call the Progress Involvement Team on 03333 204555 for help to join in.
