The Annual Spring Coffee Morning held at the home of Anthony and Christine Oliver on Saturday 16 May raised £446. On a fine sunny morning around 100 people attended and in spite of a cool breeze some sat out and enjoyed the garden. A bring and buy stall and a raffle helped to swell the proceeds all of which will be used towards this years ‘In Bloom’ Campaign.
The next Wimborne in Bloom event is the Wimborne Open Gardens Day on Sunday 28 June. Around 20 gardens will be open in and around the town. There are a number of new ones, some returning after an absence and some regulars. Refreshments will be available at some of the venues.
Judging day in the Regional Competition is on Friday 10 July with the local competition taking place during the week commencing Monday 20 July. Entry forms will be available shortly.
The town is also competing in the National Britain in Bloom finals with judging on Tuesday 4 August. Anthony Oliver, from Wimborne in Bloom said: “We need all the help possible to ensure this year that the town is looking its very best throughout the summer. It would be splendid to once again lift the National Small Town Trophy as we did on the last occasion we were entered nationally in 2012.”
