Home ... Herne Bay ... Gardening Competition

The gardening competition is one part (a small sprig, perhaps) of the Herne Bay in Bloom campaign. It's open to all Herne Bay residents and businesses. So if you live or work in Beltinge, Broomfield, Herne Bay, Reculver, Herne, Greenhill or Hampton, you can join in. There are categories for everything from a window box to an industrial estate, so everyone's in with a chance. You can put yourself in for the competition, or you can nominate someone else.
