Businesses that are considering entering the Bridlington Business in Bloom competition are being encouraged to get their entries in soon.

The competition, organised by Bridlington Town Council, is being held annually to recognise businesses that have made a special effort to make their property more attractive using floral displays.

The winner, chosen by the Bridlington in Bloom Committee, will be presented with an engraved cup to be retained for one year.

At the end of the year they will return the cup which will then be passed on to the next winner, but will be given a Bridlington Town Council plaque as a memento of their success.

Entry forms for the competition are available on the town council’s website and from the offices on Quay Road.

Entries must contain a brief nature of what the business does as well as an address, a contact name, address, telephone number and email adress.

The closing date for this year’s competition is July 12, but early entry is welcomed. Judging will take place during July.

The competition was run for the first time last year, and the winner was Grange Farm, owned by Richard and Jane Dibb. Keen gardeners Mr and Mrs Dibb had created magnificent displays of flowers at their holiday cottages, and won the judges’ vote.

Mrs Dibb said at the time: “I was absolutely delighted, we were thrilled to bits that our hard work had paid off. It is quite a lot of hard work but saying that, it makes the cottages and is appreciated by our customers.”
