Ealing in Bloom

Ealing in Bloom poster

The time for submitting your entry to the annual Ealing-in-Bloom competition has come around again. As usual there are four categories:

  • Large allotment Site (over 50 plots)
  • Small allotment Site (50 or less plots)
  • Large allotment plot (over 7.5 poles)
  • Small allotment plot (7.5 poles or less)

Apart from the fact that it’s fun, why bother to enter?  At the site level, it encourages plot holders to feel part of a community; it also focuses attention on how well the site is doing – not unimportant in light of the current threat to the Northfields site. At the individual plot level, it can give you a sense of fulfilment regarding how well your plot is being utilised.

Click on entry form to access a copy. Two important things to remember are that the closing date for allotment entries is the 12th May (earlier than other categories) and that entries under the individual plot category must be made by the plot holder - not the site manager.
