Deadline approaching for Royston in Bloom

THERE is still a week left for Crow country’s gardeners to enter this year’s Royston in Bloom competition.

The competition this year has seen a change in categories with the introduction of two new sections.

Royston in Bloom committee chairman Les Baker said: “We are attempting to widen the range of entries as must as possible and be more innovative this year.”

“The new categories for the competition are Grow-a-Boot and for nursery and toddler groups a Plant and Decorate a Pot section.

“Although we have already received a number of entries for the competition it would be good to see more.”

Other categories are be for best front garden (including container garden and low maintenance); best kept street or community area; best young persons project from a school or club and best kept allotment.

This year’s competitions have been sponsored by the Rotary Club of Royston. “The support we have received from the Rotary Club of Royston will help enormously,” said Mr Baker.
