17 May 2021

Virtual Fareham in Bloom is back

Residents with a passion for gardening are invited to enter our Virtual Fareham in Bloom competition.

Entries open on Tuesday 1 June and will close on Friday 2 July.

The competition follows last year’s first ever virtual Fareham in Bloom, which became an online event due to the pandemic. The Council has taken the decision to host the competition online again this year due to the ongoing restrictions.

There are six categories to choose from, so there is something for everyone no matter how big or small their outdoor space is.

The categories are:

Entry is free and open to anyone who lives or has a business in the Borough. Entrants simply need to email a photograph of their garden and a brief description to by Friday 2 July. There will be two winners per category, both of whom will win a prize. 

Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Ian Bastable, said: “Although it wasn’t the normal Fareham in Bloom, last year’s virtual event proved to be very popular and provided a much-needed boost during these challenging times.  I hope residents will once again enjoy showing off their wonderful gardens and outdoor spaces.”
