Childrens' 'Garden on a Tray' competition

The competition for children in this year's Ross-in-Bloom event is to make a garden on a tray. The contest is open to both individual and group entries and the lucky winners will not only receive the Ross Gazette Shield, to keep for a year, they will also win a token to spend in W. H. Smith. Runners up will receive prizes donated by the Ross-in-Bloom team and all entrants will receive a certificate of achievement.

The closing date for the competition is Saturday 30th June when the entries will be judged. All tray gardens will be on display in the Heritage Centre for the Heart of England in Bloom judges to see during their visit on Tuesday 17th July and must remain there until 18th July.

If you need some ideas of how to go about making your garden, there is a free, drop in workshop for under 11s at the Heritage Centre between the hours of 10:30 and 12:30 on Saturday 30th June, where Ross-in-Bloom volunteers will be on hand to advise you. Judging of entries will take lace at 2 pm. Parents please note that children must be accompanied by an adult.

There is still time for you to enter the competition and entry forms are available from Ross Heritage Centre.

A great turn out for Goodrich Summer Folly

Goodrich Summer Folly was extremely well attended on Sunday and there was lots going on to both entertain adults and children alike.

I was unable to stay long myself due to other commitments but went along to take a few photos of the fun, which can be seen below.
