Britain in Bloom visit Farnham & The Bourne...


Farnham has achieved gold in numoerous categories in the South and South East in Bloom competition.
Thank you to all of you who took part in planting the tubs and watering etc.

On Tuesday 29th July the judges from 'Britain in Bloom' visited Farnham to judge them on their efforts for the 2014 competition. As part of this they were welcomed into The Bourne. They visited the Cross Roads to see the great work that has been completed in the heart of our community. They also visited the Community Garden on Middle Bourne Lane. 

We should hear in September how well we did in South East in Bloom and Britain in Bloom competitions. We will let you know.

None of this would be possible without the involvement of our local community which has been bought together by The Bourne Residence Association & Bourne Conservation Group.
