Farington & Lostock Hall in Bloom 2017 is a community competition to add brightness, colour & community pride to Farington & Lostock Hall.
The committee would like more schools, churches, businesses, community groups & residents to get involved by improving & caring for their local environment through imaginative planting, landscaping & growing projects - they would love you to join in and enter too!
There are five categories to enter: -
- Best Hanging Basket /Container – Domestic properties only – any size/design
- Best Front Garden – Domestic properties only
- Best Business Premises – Any commercial concern
- Schools Challenge – Open to nurseries, primary & high schools - All entries must be an outdoor display with a ‘Recycling’ theme
- Community Area – Any shared space
To celebrate the launch, the committee have organised an event on Tuesday 7 March 2017 between 6.30pm & 8pm at St Paul’ Church Hall, Church Lane, Farington. Come along & look at last year’s, see what categories there are for the competition this year or ask advice and help from Newgate Nurseries and Brothers of Charity (who both will bring a stall to sell their goods). The committee would love to see you. You can also enjoy a hot drink and slice of cake whilst meeting people with a similar hobby/interest.
