Hica Announce In Bloom 2015 competition
Following on from last year's hugely successful Hica in Bloom competition, the 2015 competition has just been announced by the Hica Group's Shine Committee. The competition will run from now until August when the judging will take place. There will be a total of 5 prizes to be won in the categories of Best Floral Display, Best Themed Garden, Best Overall Improvement, Best Produce Garden and the Overall Winner.
Chief Executive Penni Brown said, " Last year we were blown away not only by the quality of the gardens but also by the way the residents and staff responded to the competition. The Shine philosophy is about making a difference to people's lives and the In Bloom competition exemplifies this perfectly"
Staff, residents, families and friends are invited to identify an area at a Hica location, plan what they are going to do with it and send in their designs. The next step is to make their designs a reality. Last year over 19 Hica locations took part in what turned out to be hotly contested competition with Horrox Court in East Yorkshire taking the Overall Winner prize. The Grange at Buckshaw Retirement Village were delighted to receive a Special Mention Award for their design of a previously unloved area of the grounds.
