Judgment Day For Moseley in Bloom

mib-emblem.jpgWell judgement day for Moseley in Bloom is almost upon us – on Tuesday 14th to be precise!  We are now frantically rushing around making sure everything is as it should be ready for when the Judges arrive. And we need your help – whether your are a local business or a resident in the area.

We will be doing one final weekends worth of work for the season this coming weekend (Saturday 11th, Sunday 12th and Monday 13th) to ensure that Moseley is in its most pristine condition.  Please help us keep the streets clean and do your bit. You could even be in the chance to win a Moseley in Bloom Award!  To enter use the form below:

Last year, Moseley won the Silver Gilt award for the National Britain in Bloom campaign, and the Gold award for the regional Heart of England in Bloom campaign for the work volunteers like yourself have put in.

Whilst we are unable to go for Gold in the National awards this year (we can’t enter for two consecutive years), we certainly want to keep hold of the Gold award we currently have for the regional award.

Regardless of what the judges may think; I firmly believe that we all deserve this award for the hard graft that we have all contributed for the community. Without your help and support – none of what we have accomplished could have happened… Just look at what we have done this year:

  • The Autumn Bulb Planting – this took place in November in the pay and display car park and gave colour to those visiting Moseley
  • The Meteoric Makeover – over two weekend’s worth of work transforming the barren site into stunning oasis that is already turning heads
  • The Open Gardens Weekend – the most successful we have put on attracting over 1000 visitors (many of whom have travelled afar) helping to fund future floral displays
  • The Farmers Markets – our very own stall on the farmers market helping to fundraise for projects in our community

These are just a few occasions where you have helped us. Without you – none of this could have happened.

Finally, thank you all in advance for you time and efforts so far this year. You have all done a sterling job and should be proud of yourselves. It really has helped to bring the community together and already Moseley is looking vibrant. Whether or not we do well to impress judges this year – that is not the real reason why we are doing this – it is to bring the best out of where we live. This is the real prize!

I hope to see you all over the weekend and let’s show these judges what we have got in store for them!

Best wishes
