Botley in Bloom - 2021

 

Here are the Results for this year's 2021 Summer Gardening Competition.  Things have been a little different this year, but Botley in Bloom has managed to continue this Competition, with the assistance of Clarke Mews Estate Agents - using their "For Sale" Boards to advertise this event, and setting up a dedicated e.mail address -  

 

We have been delighted with the response and thank every Botley resident who entered our annual Competition.  Weather conditions have been challenging, but you've all managed to produce gardens, containers, vegetable plots, environmental areas and allotments of a wonderful standard, which gave our Judges great difficulties in choosing Winners and Runners Up.  

 

As mentioned in our letters, due to Covid conditions, we will not be holding our regular Presentation Evening in October, but are hoping to hold  a Social Evening (may be late Winter/early Spring), as our thank you for joining in with the Competition.
