Ash in Bloom 2018

Ash Parish Council are for the eigth year running holding our very own ASH In Bloom competition.

We hope that ASH In Bloom will encourage all residents and schools to make the Parish of Ash a brighter and greener place in which to live.

So why not join in by entering either yourself or nominate a neighbour, friend or other Parish Resident. There are five competition categories and you may win yourself or your nominee a prize and a certificate.

Judging will take place in secret during JULY and entry to all categories is FREE. The judge will be particularly looking for the use of environmental practices such as peat free soil, composting, water butts and wormeries.

All winners will be invited to attend a presentation ceremony at the Ash Centre on 5th September 2018, where there will also be an opportunity to meet other winners, our competition sponsors, to be announced, and the judge.

2018 will also see the Ash in Bloom open classes being held on Saturday 14 July, at the same time as The Village Fete. For full details please click the link below.

So dig out those gardening gloves and tools or go potty with those plants and get growing for ASH In Bloom.
