Thornton Heath in Bloom 2020 open for entries, thanks to Thornton Heath Community Action Team!

Thornton Heath Community Action team are delighted to announce that Thornton Heath in Bloom 2020 is going ahead!  They cannot yet set a date for the winners’ presentation but will hold it as soon as conditions allow.

They know that during lockdown many people have been experimenting with growing flowers and produce, sometimes for the first time, and encouraging their children to become involved.  Front gardens that are bright with flowers and greenery will act as a boost to everyone as they go on their daily walks.  So let’s have a bumper entry this year!  See the flyer below for entry details and get planting.

Entries close 10 July 2020.

Email with the info required on the entry form or fill in the slip or write down the required details and post them through the letterbox at The Salvation Army, 66 High Street, Thornton Heath, CR7 8LF
