South and South East in Bloom is a competition that promotes, supports and encourages community activity through gardening, horticulture and environmental sustainability across the south-east. It is part of Britain in Bloom – Europe’s largest horticultural campaign.
The annual awards recognise excellence in local councils who work with the community to make their parks and streetscene clean, green and colourful, all year round.
Crawley has won a gold award at this years South and South East in Bloom Awards, in the small city category, competing against Canterbury, Fareham and Gosport. Fareham was the category winner.
The judges scored Crawley’s entry highly in all three categories – parks and streetscene, environmental responsibility and community participation, and were particularly complimentary about the Let's FACE it! community volunteering campaign, attractive planting schemes in the town centre, recent improvement works in Tilgate Park, our recycling programme and involving residents in snow clearance.
Crawley was also selected to represent the south east in the small city category at the Britain in Bloom Awards in October and won the silver gilt prize.
