Hica in Bloom 2017

The fourth Annual Hica in Bloom competition has now been judged and we can reveal the four homes that made it to the final are Albemarle in Hedon, Isaac Robinson Court in Hull, Raleigh Court in Hull and Woodlands in Driffield. Congratulations to all four. Results will be announced on September 29th at our annual ball. One of the judges said, "It was an extremely difficult competition to judge this year because of the high calibre of the entries, there was not a lot between them all."

Last year 18 green-fingered Hica care homes transformed a section of their outside space in a bid to win the 2016 award.Entrants have to choose an outside area within the grounds of a Hica location that they would like to transform, decide what the design will be and how this design will make a difference to service users
and enter their proposals.

Talking about Hica in Bloom Chief Executive Penni Brown said, “Hica in Bloom is one of the flagship events of our SHINE calendar. SHINE is all about making a difference. It encourages our staff, residents, their families and friends to get involved and embrace our collective responsibility to make life better for every person who receives a service from Hica or is connected with the Group. Shine has developed into a symbol of innovation, involvement and improvement, and that philosophy underpins everything that we do.”

Last year it was a very close competition with Raleigh Court in Hull and Horrox Court in Keyingham tying for first place but who will win this year?
