School Grounds Award
UPDATE 2020 – DUE TO CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS, ALL BLOOM COMPETITIONS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED THIS YEAR
Judges will be looking for examples of vegetable gardens, wildlife areas and attractive well maintained grounds containing trees, shrubs and flowers. In particular, they will be seeking out evidence of the educational use of grounds and the direct contribution the children and young people have made.

Greening Grey Britain
In addition the Shrewsbury in Bloom Committee is actively supporting the RHS ‘Greening Grey Britain’ initiative to encourage people to help tackle the growing trend of Britain paving over its gardens and green spaces to help protect the nation’s health and wildlife.
We want you to help us achieve this by transforming a bleak grey space in your community into a great green place for people and wildlife to enjoy by using plants, community action and plenty of enthusiasm! If you would like to participate, please let us know so that we can follow your progress – and don’t forget to take ‘before and after’ photos and share them with us.
