On Thursday 19 July, the judges from the South and South East in Bloom (the regional element part of Britain in Bloom) visited Fareham to tour the Borough as part of the judging for the large town category for this year’s awards.
Fareham has a renowned reputation having won Gold awards for the last 8 years. The judges got the opportunity to meet the officers/volunteers and huge numbers within the community who contributed to putting the Borough on the map for its horticultural excellence and making Fareham a picturesque place.
Executive member for Leisure and Community, Councillor Connie Hockley, said: "The Borough's entry into the regional competition is always first class and this is down to the professional officers and dedicated Fareham in bloom coordinators who work with the community throughout the year and I would like to thank them personally for all that they have achieved. The Borough was presented superbly and all participants that met with the judges did a sterling job presenting the entry."
