​​​​​​​Blyth in Bloom 2023​​​​​​​

This year was our sixth competition and we were pleased to have 19 entrants all of a very high standard. ​​​​​​​
In 2019 it was agreed that we would adopt the RHS Northumbria in Bloom system and award Gold, Silver Gilt, Silver and Bronze in each category.  As with Northumbria in Bloom, the same award can be given to more than one entrant in the category as the judging is ​​​​​​​based on points scored in the various criteria.  All entrants received a certificate, a voucher for Perennial Favourites and bag of bulbs.  Thank you to Adam and Fiona Greenwold at Perennial Favourites who have supported the competition from the first year and to Diane Dinning, Community Champion at Asda for donating the bulbs.  Those entrants receiving a Gold award also received a trophy.

The presentation evening was held on Wednesday 27 September in Blyth Spartans Clubhouse.  Thanks to Gillian and Colin at the Club for all their help and to Shirley at t​​​​​​​he Quiet Coffee Shop who provided the buffet.
