Following 2 weeks of judging Fair Ways in Bloom, we are delighted to announce the winners for 2023.
Fair Ways in Bloom is an annual, light-hearted and fun, gardening ‘competition’ between homes and services in Fair Ways. The competition is judged by a panel of Fair Ways staff with prizes awarded to the best entries.
This year, the quality of entries was the best to date, and far beyond the judge’s expectations. The standout entries didn’t just focus on flowers, but all sorts of vegetables, pathways, garden seats, outdoor rooms and even sensory items. The involvement and passion that young people and people we support brought to the event was simply amazing and far beyond any expectations!

Congratulations to the Fair Ways in Bloom Champions for 2023, Birch Grove.
Based in Wales, this home blew us away with the overwhelming amount of planning and effort they had put into the competition this year. The results of such hard work transformed the once empty garden into an area that could be enjoyed by all staff and young people.
Highlights of this entry included;
And of course, homemade Welsh cakes on arrival while we watched their presentation and read through their very thorough journal on what they had achieved.
Congratulations to all the staff and young people at Birch Grove for their amazing work.
