Leamington in Bloom The Magazine, just released online, illustrates the astonishing variety of our parks and green spaces, with articles on the organisations and volunteers who make these possible and wonderful pictures. The magazine has been produced to support Leamington’s entry for the 2018 Heart of England In Bloom competition. Members will be familiar with some of the displays shown but any reader will be amazed at how much has been accomplished, for which we should all be grateful. Topics covered range from our beautiful central parks, such as Jephson Gardens or Victoria Park, to displays which we might pass by without considering, like roundabouts with sustainable planting, the gardens at Leamington Station, pub gardens and hanging baskets. New but very welcome this year are the unforgettable poppies surrounding the Vitsoe building, lighting up the entrance to Leamington.
The judges for Heart of England in Bloom will make their tour of Leamington on 12th July. The Leamington in Bloom committee will also present their own awards in various categories Details of how to enter for the photographic competition, for which the last date of entry is Friday 17th August, can also be found on the website. The theme of this year’s competition is the Colours of Leamington.
