It’s great to see the efforts of businesses through Sandgate put into making their shop fronts look seasonally floral during the summer, adding to the Parish Council displays of planters and baskets throughout the village.
Following up on the suggestion of local residents, we’re delighted to announce that there will be a “Sandgate in Bloom” award this year for the business / shop / pub / restaurant that goes the extra mile in making our area look beautiful this summer in the run up to the Sea Festival.
In the middle of August a secret shopper will have a look at all business floral displays through Sandgate and nominate a winner of the “Sandgate in Bloom 2019” award. We’ll announce the winner and commended others on-line on 19th August, and the winner will get a little award (possibly with bubbles in it!).
No need to enter – all business displays through the centre of the village and Golden Valley will be looked at. To those with great displays already, keep watering, and to those who are still to do so – happy gardening!
Note – although we think the Parish Council organized planters and baskets sponsored by local businesses look beautiful, they will not be judged as a part of this competition, which is for the best “on business” display.
