Competition 2023

In villages, towns and cities up and down the country, the business and residential competitions that support In Bloom initiatives are a lot of fun and can become extremely competitive, especially when you have several pubs and restaurants competing for the top accolade! For Hook in Bloom 2023 there are six categories of entry including the Hook In Bloom Community Trophy which was introduced in 2021. We hope this year even more community groups will take part. A community group can be any group of people such as people living in retirement complex, a group of people who have got together to cheer up a community area, a group of neighbours who have joined forces, or a group of people who have planted a communal garden like a churchyard, school gardens or a club room. The only stipulation is that the group must be volunteers. Don’t forget you may need the landowners permission.

The Bridges Estate Agency Trophy for the Most Attractive front Garden, The Batten Trophy for Best Residential Hanging Basket, The Hook Parish Council Trophy for the Most Attractive Business Premises (floral display outside or a window display to celebrate HiB), The Worlock Trophy for the Best Hotel, Restaurant or Pub, Hook In Bloom Community Trophy and The Hook Cross Trophy for the Best Allotment.
