Latest news from Village in Bloom

After recovering from the wonderful news about our South /South East England award we headed off to the Borough awards at Ferneham Hall.
Congratulations to the Borough as the Hall looked amazing decorated with hanging baskets, floral displays and wonderful tables . We were delighted to receive a Borough award for Community Gardening from the Mayor and Leader of the Council .  Both awards will go on display when we have consulted on the best place for the Village.
Work has started already for next year . We are having a pumpkin carving or decorating competition . You can bring pumpkins to the Village Green on Saturday 28th October between 12 to 4 and prizes will be awarded at 4.
On Sunday 29th October we will be bulb planting from 10.30 until 12.00. Come and join us on the Village Green .
Very exciting news about the Wild Flower meadow to be planted in the churchyard. Come and hear about it and help out on October 26th 11 until 1.00. Tim Mason is leading this and Village in Bloom will be supporting this as much as possible
Why not plant your pots with bulbs and put them outside to keep the village looking superb all year

Village in Bloom – Awards

On Wednesday 20th September the Village in Bloom committee travelled to
Gatwick to attend the South and South East of England awards.  We had no
expectations as this was our first entry, but were excited to sit down with
400 others.
The awards are given in the following categories, Highly Commended, Bronze,
Silver, SilverGilt and Gold. Only the main awards are given at the ceremony.
We watched as castles, towns and stately homes received their awards.  After
luncheon it was time for large villages.  It was with huge pride that
Village in Bloom Titchfield were awarded a SilverGilt and two members of the
committee received it on behalf of the village.
Congratulations to everyone who took part, helped and supported.  Our
village has become one of two receiving SilverGilt, there were no Gold
awards in this category.  It was also announced that coming in on a
SilverGilt was a force to be reckoned with.
The Committee are now ready to carry on and aim for Gold next year . We will
let you know if we have any result in the Borough awards on the 27th.

Thank you and well done everyone !
