Hungerford in Bloom 2022
Hungerford Town Council has launched its annual Hungerford in Bloom competition and welcomes entries from residents, community groups and businesses. There are categories for all types of garden or floral displays, large or small.
This popular competition is enjoyed by many each year. Gardening is recognised as being hugely beneficial to wellbeing. We hope that in this Jubilee year even more people will get involved and have fun enhancing our beautiful town and maybe providing inspiration to others. The hanging baskets and window boxes organised by HTC will have red, white and blue plantings this year. Perhaps entrants to Hungerford in Bloom might also like to consider a Jubilee theme.
To enter, please send an email to email@example.com requesting an entry form, or call HTC on 01488 686195 and leave a message with your name, an email address or postal address and we will send you an entry form. Alternatively, you can download one below.
There will also be a competition for allotment holders in Hungerford. Further details on this to be announced by Hungerford Allotment Holders Association (HAHA).
