Green fingered growers needed for Cornwall in Bloom
7:00am Wednesday 16th January 2013 in News
Flower power will return once again this year for the fourth annual Cornwall in Bloom competition.
People are being encouraged to get into the green-fingered spirit by joining forces to improve their neighbourhoods.
Run by Cornwall Council and Truro City Council, the Cornwall in Bloom competition has encouraged many to gives their gardens and open spaces a make over. A range of projects have been set up since the competition started in 2009, including woodland groups and allotment societies.
This year, the event will include a schools’ competition to encourage youngsters to grow as many potatoes as they can from a single seed potato.
Judging for the competition takes place during July and August.
Councillor John Pollard, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for localism, sustainability and devolution said: “Each year more communities sign up and we would like to see this trend continue this year. I have personal experience of just how much a local ‘in bloom’ group can achieve and urge all towns and parishes to get involved!”
