Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom judges to visit Corn­wall

Seaway News - - ENTERTAINMENT & RESTAURANTS -

It’s time to pre­pare our com­mu­nity for the ar­rival of the Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom judges once again! Corn­wall will be par­tic­i­pat­ing for the sec­ond year in the Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom Pro­vin­cial edi­tion. Judges are set to ar­rive in Corn­wall from July 19-21.

Through­out the spring, City staff and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity have been hard at work with tree plant­ing ini­tia­tives, bark and com­post day, lit­ter pick up and the ad­di­tion of re­cy­cling bins and garbage bins through­out the city. Gar­den cen­tres and land­scape contractors and de­sign­ers have been busy help­ing home- own­ers and busi­nesses beau­tify their prop­er­ties. Corn­wall is now in full bloom!

The Corn­wall – A Com­mu­nity In Bloom com­mit­tee is ramp­ing up ef­forts within the com­mu­nity by en­cour­ag­ing cit­i­zens to make an ex­tra ef­fort, whether it is to pick up lit­ter, plant a few ex­tra flow­ers, host a neigh­bour­hood com­pe­ti­tion for the “ best yard”, par­tic­i­pate in green ini­tia­tives or show some civic pride by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties within the com­mu­nity. The judges’ visit will in­clude the eval­u­a­tion of all com­mu­nity ef­forts in the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: tidi­ness, en­vi­ron­men­tal aware- ness, cul­tural and her­itage con­ser­va­tion, land­scaped ar­eas, turf and ground cover, flo­ral dis­plays, tree and ur­ban for­est man­age­ment and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment.
