This year's Greenwich in Bloom winners have blown us away!
Our yearly competition, Greenwich in Bloom, gives our green fingered residents the chance to showcase their gardening talents. Every year we’re so impressed by the quality of the entries but this year we were truly blown away. The competition ran for four weeks and more than 160 people entered - that’s the most we’ve ever had!
One of the judges, Cllr Adel Khaireh, Cabinet Member for Culture, Communities and Equalities, said ‘This year’s Greenwich in Bloom competition showed just how talented our residents are, but also how gardening as an activity, can bring positivity and focus, which has been especially valuable during the past few months. Our winners – and all the entrants – should be really proud of themselves and I hope they enjoy their gardens and containers throughout the summer’
We’re delighted to announce our 2020 winners, who are not only receiving Coolings Garden Centre vouchers but can also hold their head up high as proud Greenwich in Bloom prize winners.
We hope that next year we’ll see even more brilliant entries!
