How it works:
Last year the parish of Cobham was presented with a Silver Gilt award as part of the South and South East in Bloom competition.
You, too, can take part this year by decorating the front of your house with plants, flowers, pots and window boxes.
Many of you participated in commemorating last year’s centenary of the WW1 Armistice and the parish really exhibited its pride and community spirit for everyone to see. It would be wonderful to show that same pride and spirit to the judges of South and South East in Bloom
We hope you will take part.
Cobham Parish Council is organising a further Front of House floral competition. Following last year’s successful competition, it was decided that the theme this year will be ‘A Cottage Garden’. We hope that many of you will take part so that Cobham and Sole Street can look their summer best!
If you would like to take part, please decorate your front gardens/window baskets/hanging baskets – whatever is your front of house. We have appointed a judge who will be visiting the village towards the end of July; the winner will be announced at the Cobham Gardeners’ Autumn Show.
There will be prizes awarded for the best front garden floral display and best window box/hanging basket.
