We now have two main award campaigns, in addition to the It’s Your Neighbourhood (IYN) Scheme that is run through the Heart of England campaign.
The first are the original Moseley in Bloom Awards, which for 2016 will be presented in the following categories: Star Shop, Most Captivating Café, Rosiest Restaurant, Most Blooming Boozer, Most Floral Faith Group, Most Blooming Business or Institution, Evergreen Elders, Special Achievement Award. Marks are awarded for the horticultural display, the imaginative use of planters and the maintenance of the display.
The second campaign, newly expanded this year, are our MiB Front Garden Awards, which now have three categories: Small Gardens, Large Gardens and Parking Gardens (gardens that have been modified to increase parking while retaining an attractive garden component). The purpose of this new category is to encourage residents to design a significant garden area with attractive and colourful plantings alongside the area designated for parking. In addition, credit will be given for the environmental friendliness of the hard standing – using permeable surfaces or drains to capture run-off. Gardens can be nominated by residents, or will be identified by Moseley in Bloom Committee members. We are happy to include gardens in the whole B13, greater Moseley area.
Judging for both campaigns normally takes place in July or early August. The judging for 2016 has been completed and the awards will be announced at our Awards Night on 3rd November 2016, at the All Services Club, Church Road, Moseley, 6.00 for 6.30pm. Anybody who has worked with us this year or has participated in any of the campaigns is warmly invited to attend.
