Move Revolution are delighted to be supporting Blooming Earlswood for the second year. We are looking forward to the wonderful community feel and all the incredible entries for 2017.
Last year it really felt the competition helped to bring the community together, we know the winners were very proud to be part of Blooming Earlswood.
“Creating William and Oliver’s allotment garden was a fantastic project which involved all the family, including the grandparents. We all helped to decide which produce to grow and eat, and where to position each plant. Without fail, passers-by would stop and chat with the children about the garden. It was a lovely way to make new friends in the community. The icing on the cake was winning the Child/Family category. We were sure it would go to someone else so the boys were surprised and thrilled to win. The expression on William’s face as he collected the award made all the hard work worthwhile!”
“Our whole family helped to make the scarecrow and we were proud to have it in our garden for the neighbours to see! It was great to see the judges at our house, especially Mrs Tidy because she is the top head of our school. When they said our names to announce we had won the best scarecrow we were very, very happy! It felt amazing and exciting!”
We can’t wait to see what you are all going to pull out of the bag for this year’s entries!
To simplify entering, and hopefully encourage even more entries there are only three categories this year and entries will be via the Move Revolution website which will be updated in the coming weeks.
The Blooming Earlswood 2017 Categories are:
- Best front garden
- Best container/pot
- Best scarecrow
The judging will take place during June, with the entry deadline being set for 4th June this year to ensure there is plenty of time for them all to be seen for shortlisting. The prizes will again be awarded during the Federation of Earlswood Schools Summer fair which is on 1st July. The scarecrows are most welcome to come to the fair with you, in fact we really hope they will come along and join us on the field! It’s set to be a brilliant event and everyone will love coming along to look at them!
We’d like to follow a few growing journeys this year, so if you know you’re going to enter, please message the Blooming Earlswood page on Facebook to let us know if you’re happy for us to pop along periodically and share your progress on the page.
We can’t wait to get started!
