Farnham Town Council said a big thank you to the army of volunteers who contributed to the success of this year’s Farnham in Bloom at an awards ceremony (on Thursday 11 October).
John Ely attended the awards ceremony and accepted a South & South East in Bloom Certificate of Excellence from Cllr David Attfield, the Mayor of Farnham and Cllr Stephen Hill.
The award categories reflect the breadth of work that goes into Farnham in Bloom, including fun projects that encourage children and families to join in, alongside those that challenge accomplished gardeners. Categories included the best hanging baskets, best allotment plot, best gardens (of varying sizes), the tallest sunflower, the best shop front, the best wildlife garden and South & South East in Bloom Certificates of Excellence.

More than 11 years ago, a date in October was first marked out to bring digital inclusion to national attention in the UK - and Get Online Week was born. Since then the campaign has grown into a week-long, annual celebration, with thousands of events taking place each year in communities across the UK, giving everyone the chance to find the help they need to improve their digital skills.

PRESS RELEASE - SEPTEMBER 2018
This year the Hale Community Centre’s “Get Growing@the Bungalow” Project achieved its first award from It’s Your Neighbourhood; the South & South East in Blooms’ major community participation programme, run on behalf of the RHS Britain in Bloom Campaigns.
Hale Community Centre (formerly Sandy Hill Community Bungalow) has received £10,000 over the last two years from the People’s Health Trust to create a community garden. The garden just outside the Centre’s main entrance now has an established fruit and vegetable garden where groups involved in the project have been able to share their experience and knowledge to grow a variety of fruit and vegetables; tomatoes, beans, beetroot, salad vegetables, etc.
It’s Your Neighbourhood, part of the wider RHS Britain in Bloom initiative, uses benchmarking levels to recognise and applaud the achievements of the participants as well as to provide feedback and guidance for the future.
John Ely, on behalf of the Hale Community Centre attended this year’s South East in Bloom Awards 2018 at the Amex Stadium, Brighton on the 14th September to receive the “Advancing” Award from Joe Talbot of BBC Surrey & Sussex and John Negus of BBC Surrey & Sussex’ Radio Dig It programme (photo).
Cathy Burroughs, Manager of the Hale Community Centre congratulated everyone involved in the “Get Growing@the Bungalow” Project on achieving this award, and thanked the dedicated gardeners and volunteers for all their hard work over the last two years.
