Green-fingered Erewash residents still have time to enter this year’s Erewash in Bloom gardening competition ahead of the deadline, Friday 7 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!”
