Farnham In Bloom 2019

The results of South and South East in Bloom 2019 have been announced and Farnham has come out on top with a number of gold awards.

As a sponsor of Farnham In Bloom, we were delighted to hear of this recent success and extend our congratulations to all involved.

Farnham in Bloom won Gold and Best in Category in both the Town Centre and the Large Town categories.

Amongst a raft of awards, Badshot Lea Cemetery improved on last year’s Silver Gilt with a Gold award in the Small Cemetery category and West Street received Silver Gilt in the Large Cemetery category.

Councillor Sally Dickson, Lead Member for Community Enhancement has said: “Farnham in Bloom reaches every village and neighbourhood in the Farnham area. The flowers bring pleasure to residents and visitors and the broad range of In Bloom activities have such a positive impact on those who take part.

Although judging took place in July, work has already started on Farnham in Bloom 2020. Earlier this month volunteers planted on 13,500 plug plants for winter displays and in October they will plant daffodil bulbs in roadside verges and at prominent junctions.

As well as having entered South and South East in Bloom, Farnham is also competing for gold in the RHS Britain in Bloom competition, the results of which will be announced on 25 October.
