Fair Ways in Bloom 2021

Fair Ways in Bloom is an annual, company-wide competition that encourages our services to get a breath of fresh air, connect with nature and create some beautiful green spaces for them to enjoy. The friendly competition is also a chance for the staff and service users to partake and bond over a shared activity and learn new life skills.

This year there are nine categories meaning there is a chance for everyone to get involved and win some prizes, the categories in the competition are:

  • Fair Ways in Bloom Champion
  • Design and Planning Award
  • Best Presentation Award
  • Innovation Award
  • Sustainability Award
  • Young Person / Service User involvement Award  
  • Best Hanging Basket Award
  • Tallest Sunflower Award
  • Local Community Award

Judging for the competition began on Monday 19th July 2021, with judges visiting each of the entries, talking through the planning stages, service user engagement and of course, the garden and features itself. We expect judging to continue this week (w.c 26th July), with the winners being announced later this week or early next week.

Our judges have been impressed so far, having seen some excellent examples of our homes and services getting involved in the competition (even one service without a garden!).

A selection of images from our judges visits so far, can be seen below.
