Whitehall in Bloom to take place in Darwen
12:58pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
ORGANISERS are gearing up for the second Whitehall in Bloom awards event at the Whitehall Hotel next month.
Councillors in the area launched the competition in a bid to brighten up the area last year.
And after a successful first year, the initiative was continued this summer.
On Monday, September 2, awards will be given out in a number of classes, including large gardens, small gardens, balconies, garages, schools, and businesses, as well as the best overall display.
The awards will be handed out by town council mayor Eileen Entwistle.
Whitehall councillor David Foster said: “It has been great to see so many entries to this year’s Whitehall in Bloom.
“Seeing people’s gardens looking so vibrant really improves the area, and a lot of businesses and schools have got involved, too.
“I wish all those who have taken part luck at the awards ceremony.”
“I would like to thank all those who have helped or sponsored this year’s competition, including WEC, John Sturgess, Dave Hunter, Claire’s Creatures and Ladybugs Garden Centre.”
