Canterbury Bid

A bloomin’ marvelous week!

The judging tour for South & South East in Bloom takes place in Canterbury on Thursday, July 14th.

Community groups, businesses and organisations have worked tirelessly to ensure our green spaces are thriving, diverse and looking beautiful in the hope of us winning gold (again!).

Not only is it our 9th year of entering the South and South East in Bloom (S&SEiB) Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) regional competition, it’s the third time we have been nominated to represent our region in the prestigious RHS Britain in Bloom competition.

Gone are the days when Bloom was all about summer bedding displays, it is now as much about caring for our environment, as well as gardening, planting and creating attractive places, and the whole community (both residents and businesses) becoming involved in caring for their place.
