The Calne in Bloom team are encouraging Calne’s residents, schools and community gardeners to enter into the Calne in Bloom 2017 Gardener’s Competition.  Entries can be made until 5pm on Friday 16th June, with categories for private front and back gardens, community gardens and business gardens.

To enter, download an entry form from or pick up a form from Calne Visitor & Community Information Centre. All entrants will be invited to the Calne in Bloom awards evening at Calne Town Hall on Wednesday 11th October.

Calne in Bloom co-ordinator Trudy King speaks about the awards “They are a great opportunity to share and celebrate the hard work, creativity and pride that has gone into your own garden, a neighbour’s or a community garden.”

Calne in Bloom is an award-winning partnership between Calne Town Council and local community gardening and conservation groups. The group’s shared aim is to improve Calne by making it a greener, cleaner and more beautiful place to live, work and visit. The group’s recent awards include Gold for Calne in the RHS South West in Bloom competition for the past three years and a regional Youth Achievement Award for the Calne Bowl Project in 2015.
