Goudhurst in Bloom is an award given to outstanding floral displays.
There are 4 categories in the competition to choose from:
The Dench cup – for private gardens
The Veronica Knight cup – for cottage gardens
The Hugo cup – for business premises, schools and institutions
The Jonica Fox plate – for public houses
Goudhurst in Bloom will take place this coming summer for residents of Goudhurst, Kilndown and Curtisden Green. Judging should take place during the first week in July, with an award ceremony hosted by the Star and Eagle, Goudhurst.
This year there will be a “community award” as the parish council are aware of the number of people who each year work tirelessly in their neighbourhood to keep it looking smart and tidy. If you know of someone who always cuts a neighbour’s hedge, sweeps up leaves in the street outside their own and neighbouring houses, strims and tidies a footpath, or picks up litter, please get in touch giving details of the person you wish to nominate.
Entry forms for the competition are available from May onwards throughout the parish or can be obtained directly from Angela Broom on 01580 211316
