Up Hatherley Parish Council Bloom Awards
The Up Hatherley Summer Gardens Competition was launched in 2007, by the late former chairman of the Parish Council, David Hall, and it is a much loved and well supported community event, open from May to residents of Up Hatherley and nearby.
From just a handful of entries in its first year, the competition has grown more popular and successful every year, with 75 entries this year, including the most ever children’s and school entrants! Judging took place in late June, and the winners of the nine trophies and other awards were announced at a special Presentation Evening held at the Manor by the Lake, with the Mayor presenting the awards. A recent survey revealed that parishioners said it was one of the best things about living in Up Hatherley!
