If you have a gorgeous garden or have been involved in a great community planting scheme then you still have time to enter Mid & East Antrim in Bloom community competitions.
Due to the temperamental weather this summer, the closing date for entries has been extended to Friday 2 August.
Mayor of Mid & East Antrim, Councillor Maureen Morrow, is therefore encouraging green fingered residents to put themselves, friends and neighbours, forward for recognition.
“There are a wide range of categories including Best Kept Front Garden, Best Kept Front Container Garden, Best Kept Community Planting Scheme, Best Kept Allotment Garden, Best Kept Commercial Premises, the Gardening for Wildlife Award and the Volunteer of the Year award.
“There are great prizes to be won and winners and runners up will be invited to a special prize giving ceremony later in the year.
“Our Mid & East Antrim in Bloom community competitions are a great chance for people to be recognised for their gardening skills, and a big thank you to residents for doing their bit to keep our borough beautiful.”
Applications are welcome from all residents of the borough and entry is free of charge.
Why not consider nominating a neighbour’s garden and other properties or local businesses that you think and deserve recognition.
You can download the application form at www.midandeastantrim.gov.uk/inbloom.
Entries can be returned to: Mid and East Antrim in Bloom, Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, 11 Antrim Street, Carrickfergus, BT38 7DG or emailed to: email@example.com
