Green-fingered Erewash residents still have time to enter this year’s Erewash in Bloom gardening competition ahead of the deadline, Friday 7th July. Organised by Erewash Borough Council’s Pride in Erewash campaign, the annual competition features a range of categories to suit gardeners of all ages – including best front and rear gardens, best wildlife garden, top hanging baskets, best allotments and a fun tallest sunflower award for youngsters. There are also awards on offer for schools and businesses.
It is quick and easy to enter online at www.erewash.gov.uk/erewashinbloom or entry forms are available from Ilkeston and Long Eaton town halls. Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“This remains a very popular competition with all our gardening gurus out there and they make it a very difficult task for the Bloom judges who are always bowled over by the quality of all entries – hats off to all the residents, businesses and schoolchildren who put the flower power into our borough. So if you haven’t entered yet, let’s hear from you!”
