WELCOME to SOUTHEND IN BLOOM

URGENT MESSAGE FOR THIS YEAR 2015

Dear Entrants,

It is with regret that Southend in Bloom will not be running its annual residents, schools, communal, community and commercial competitions this year. 3 important volunteers from the core of the committee have moved into full time work and will be unable to efficiently carry out the necessary duties, effectively. Unfortunately, there are not enough volunteers generally to carry the competition through this year, Southend in Bloom will, however, still be entering the borough, as a whole, into Anglia in Bloom. I cannot stress enough the importance of the impact on the town, that is made by the work every one puts in, every year, creating beautiful planting, the coming together of communities and the wider implications of educating our young into a firm belief that growing is essential. The allotments competition will still be able to take place as the allotmenteers have agreed to help judge each other’s plots ( details will be made available through individual allotments societies ). We hope to resume running the competitions as per usual next year 2016, this will be reliant on new volunteers. For more information, please do contact our remaining team by e-mail at info@southendinbloom.org.uk, alternatively go onto our website.

Yours sincerely,

Remaining Committee SIB
