We Want Your Community To Join Our Environmental Campaign In 2017
 
During our judging each year we drive through many villages, towns and cities and see some great examples of community projects, attractive and clean shopping areas, well maintained housing estates, good landscaping and many displays of flowers, we regularly wonder why they are not entering and getting recognition for all their achievements, so we are asking for 2017 “Please Do Showcase Your Community In 2017”.
We are very keen to encourage new entrants, these can be Villages, Towns, Cities, Coastal resorts, Urban communities and just about any Community project across the whole of the Anglia region, we would like any interested community to get in touch and discuss the potential for their community to enter in 2017, we will be travelling across the Anglia region giving talks and presentations and advice to all who get in touch, “We want your community to showcase your proud achievements and be part of the wider Anglia in Bloom Community in 2017”
