Calling all Midhurst in Bloom gardeners

They are a hardy bunch at Midhurst Town Council and having dried out after entertaining 700 people in the rain for the Diamond Jubilee, they are armed with wellingtons and brollies and ready for the Midhurst in Bloom contest.

Judging takes place on July 11 and the closing date for entries is Wednesday, July 4. Chairman John Etherington said: “In addition to welcoming entries from previous competitors we would love to see new entries and have devised a ‘Green finger Greenhorn’ category for new competitors.”

Anyone who would like an entry form should contact Midhurst Town Council at Capron House, North Street.
