The council’s Communities Housing & Environment agreed last night to approve a borough wide in Bloom competition for Maidstone. Businesses and residents will be able to show case their talents in floral displays and environmental projects. The launch of the competition and further details of how to enter will be published by the council soon.
Cllr Denise Joy said ‘Maidstone in Bloom will encourage community engagement involving residents to share their skills for others to enjoy. Brightening up our outdoor spaces can only be good for everyone, a great initiative.
The suggested categories below are awaiting final approval:
- Residential Categories: Best front garden, Best back garden, Best planted pot/trough or basket, Best allotment
- Commercial Categories: Best commercial garden, Best commercial planted pot/trough or basket, Most attractive shop, pub or business frontage.
