HENLEY in Bloom is finalising the route it will take the judges of the regional and national Britain in Bloom
HENLEY in Bloom is finalising the route it will take the judges of the regional and national Britain in Bloom competitions next month.
The group hopes to start each tour with a presentation at Henley Bowls Club in Mill Meadows before visiting the Greencroft allotments, the train-shaped floral display in Station Park and Fair Mile cemetery. The judges will also visit Sacred Heart Primary School, which has a gardening club and pupils grow their own vegetables.
Their marks and comments will concentrate on three areas — horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility and community participation.
Henley in Bloom volunteers are also continuing to improve the appearance of the town before the judges visit in late July and early August.
Two white cherry trees will be planted at the entrance to the Gainsborough estate tomorrow (Saturday). Waitrose has donated the trees, which will be planted by the supermarket’s manager with members of Henley in Bloom and the Henley in Transition group and residents.
Kellie Hinton, who chairs Henley in Bloom, said: “There is a lot of green space up there and the additional trees will make it look even better.”
