PRESS RELEASE

 

LYDD IN BLOOM 2022

 

Lydd Town Council is delighted to announce that the Lydd in Bloom Competition 2022 is taking place this year.

The Lydd in Bloom competition is held by Lydd Town Council to give recognition to the residents and local businesses who have made a significant contribution to the appearance of the Parish by their summer planting schemes. The categories are for gardens and tubs, troughs and hanging baskets in both the residential and business categories.

There is also a category for the most productive and well-maintained allotment plot.

All Members of Lydd Town Council have been issued with their road allocation and judging sheets and will be shortlisting their preferences in readiness for the final judging.

 We are inviting nominations from members of the public to put forward their favourite displays. Please email; townclerk@lyddtowncouncil.gov.uk or telephone 01797 320999.

Each year Lydd Town Council includes money in the budget to hold the competition and to purchase prizes to be presented to the winners and hold a celebration reception in the Guild Hall for them to enjoy. Last year Lydd Town Council presented 17 prizes for fantastic floral displays in the Town and at the Coast.

The overall winner for the residential category will be presented with the engraved rose bowl to hold for 1 year and the winner of the best allotment plot will be presented with the newly introduced ‘Barry Arter’ cup. There will be gift vouchers and certificates presented to the other winners.

Over the years of the competition, Lydd Town Council has been impressed by the support the community has shown for Lydd in Bloom and the work of our green fingered residents and businesses with their floral displays which provide a wide range of benefits, including improving the appearance of the parish of Lydd, the local environment and brings a sense of pride to our Parish.
