Our Bournemouth in Bloom Schools Competition engages so many young people to take pride in growing plants, flowers and vegetables. The Competition was organised by our Schools Coordinator, Mrs Penny Slade BEM, who recently received the National Honour of a British Empire Medal for her contribution to Horticulture, her work for the National Open Gardens Scheme and dedication to charities. Every credit should be given to Penny for the success of today’s ceremony which has involved schools from across the Bournemouth Borough.
Bournemouth in Bloom appreciates all the support you give as it goes from strength to strength.
