Titchfield has been chosen to represent the South of England in the 2019 Britain in Bloom competition.
Following our success last year the organisers, the RHS, has picked Titchfield to be considered for the ‘Large Village’ category.
Last year Titchfield won Gold at the South /South East Britain awards.
There are just 71 entries in all classes across the whole of the UK.
The UK Finalist marking criteria has been updated for 2019 to reflect the increasing importance of community involvement and environmental stewardship.
From this year, 40 per cent of all marks will be awarded to efforts in horticulture, with 30 per cent each devoted to community and environment, instead of the previous split of 50, 25 and 25.
The RHS Britain in Bloom judges will visit Titchfield in August, with the winners of each category announced at an awards ceremony in the autumn.
Titchfield in Bloom organiser, Gloria Hunt, said, “Out theme this year will revolve round Care as we are judged on care of plants,colour, Green spaces, recycling, refuse, litter, weeding, business involvement, youngest to oldest resident, wildlife and history conservation and very much more.
“However, everyone who took part last year made the Village look stunning and still we have lovely corners .
