Judgment Day Looms for those that Bloom!

Well this is it – it’s our last chance to impress the national judges! Last time we were entered into the National competition (2008), we were awarded silver gilt. Can we notch it up to a Gold award or even category winners? The stakes are even higher this time!

Please see the summary below of upcoming activities throughout the next couple of weeks. Please do come and help – if you work locally – can you persuade your team to help and volunteer?

Saturday & Sunday 

7th & 8th August

National Britain in Bloom Judging PreparationThe time has come again and we need to ensure Moseley in Spick & Span for the regional Heart of England in Bloom campaign. 

Judges will be appearing in Moseley judging our efforts – so it’s the last chance for us to ensure everything is neat and tidy!

Areas of focus will be:

  • Tree bases
  • Village wines (on corner of Woodbridge Road)
  • Car Park beds
  • Network Rail Entrance
  • King David School Entrance
  • St Marys Church & alley
  • Bristol Street Motors

There is plenty to be done over the weekend and we need your support!

Please come down to the Meteor Ford site on both days from 10.00am to help us to achieve that hard to get Gold for the national campaign!
