It has proved to be another bumper year for the Wimborne in Bloom art and poetry competitions with the theme ‘The Bridges of Wimborne and Life Around Them’.
The many entries in both the children’s and adult’s categories of the Wimborne in Bloom poetry and art competitions with the theme ‘The Bridges of Wimborne and Life Around Them,’ were of an exceptionally high standard and gave the judges a challenging task.
Wimborne in Bloom has been delighted with the continued and positive response from local schools. Over 450 entries flooded in from Wimborne First, St John’s, Pamphill, Allenbourn and Queen Elizabeth’s.
This year a local artist judged work from Allenbourn and Queen Elizabeth’s and the town mayor Cllr Terry Wheeler and his wife Pauline judged the primary school art.
The adult art competition attracted a wide variety of interpretations with entrants using a range of media. It was also judge by a local artist.
There were more than 70 entries in the children’s poetry, and the adult poetry competition was well supported.
The Wimborne in Bloom annual prize giving will be held in the afternoon at Allenbourn Middle School, East Borough on 23 September. This event will include the prize presentations for the Wimborne in Bloom garden competitions.
Artwork generated by the competition is on display in Wimborne library and the minster until 16 July.
