South and SouthEast in Bloom Judging
On Thursday 16th July Judges from South and SouthEast in Bloom spent over three hours in the Borough being shown around Fareham and meeting some of the people who help the Council and Fareham in Bloom keep the Borough looking attractive. The judges said how much they enjoyed the day and we now look forward to seeing their report and the level of our award at the presentation reception in Brighton on 11th September.
Bringing People and Parks Together is our Fareham in Bloom community environmental campaign. Established in1996 it aims to improve and sustain the local environment whilst encouraging active participation in parks and horticultural activities for the long term benefit of the residents and visitors to the Borough.
The campaign is run as a partnership between the Council and a dedicated group of Coordinators who work tirelessly throughout the year to deliver a programme of activities which seek to involve the community. Attendance numbers over the last year have been in excess of 14000 with a staggering 9000 volunteer hours given in support of the Borough’s parks and green spaces, which is a real testimony to the reputation and support that we have.
We feel we have established something quite special, in fact it could be said to be quite unique. Eighteen years on and involving literally thousands of people who participate and give willingly to support what has become a very well respected community engaging campaign; Fareham in Bloom continues to excel with new and innovative ideas.
Bringing People and Parks Together is what we do and do well.
