BOURNEMOUTH has been selected from more than 1,000 entrants to take part in the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom UK Finals 2013, the country's biggest voluntary campaign which involves more than 300,000 people. Bournemouth is one of 80 finalists and is in the Coastal (over 12,000) category.
South & South East nominated Bournemouth to the UK stage of the competition following regional and national judging last year. Bournemouth was selected for outstanding commitment to environmental responsibility, community participation and gardening achievement.
In July / August this year, Bournemouth's green-fingered volunteers will be showing off their commitment to a cleaner, greener Britain, by taking the Britain in Bloom judges on a tour of local projects and initiatives in a hope of being awarded Gold and being named category winner at the annual award ceremony, this year being held in Cleethorpes in October.
