2019 UP HATHERLEY IN BLOOM - closed now

We hold this annual competition to encourage gardening enthusiasts to display their gardens in the most attractive and imaginative way. Now in its thirteenth successful year, we hope to attract even more entries! By supporting this competition you will not only enjoy the results of your efforts, but you will also be fostering a sense of real Community spirit. So, "DON'T BE SHY, GIVE IT A TRY!"

 To make sure you don't miss out, you can sign up to updates from this website via the link on the right hand side of the page. When the competition is live, entry forms are also available from the Post Office, Dundry Nurseries, Morrisons, Hawkes Pharmacy, or the Doctor’s Surgery.

The Presentation of Awards Evening will be held at The Manor by the Lake on Monday 8h July, and all entrants and their guest are invited to attend. Trophies will be again presented to winning contestants by the Mayor, and there will be live music at the Piano, and refreshments.

2019 will be the 13th anniversary of the Competition, and we hope to continue to build on the growing successes of previous years. We were delighted to see so many new entries from children and schools last year  and we hope this will continue this year.
