Virtual Safari and Summer Competition

posted in: Events, News | 0

With the social distancing rules put in place for the Covid-19 pandemic, we are this year holding a Virtual Safari and summer competition. The Virtual Safari will run from the 13th June to 31st July 2020 in order to capture a little more of what Burgess Hill has to offer over the coming weeks. As usual we will be (hopefully) raising money for St Peter and St James Hospice.

The gardens will be featured on our Website and Facebook pages and we are asking that participating gardeners to submit photographs (with narrative) or a short video (again with narrative) showing their creations to a potentially much larger audience than we previously enjoyed.

 The Summer Garden Competition – 2020 this year will not be the same as in previous years. We will be having a photographic competition instead, which will be scheduled to run for entries from the 13th June through to the 31st July 2020.  Due to the nature of the competition we have decided not to award our usual trophies but winners and runners-up will receive a Certificate. The categories will be as follows –

  1. Flower bed
  2. Vegetable patch
  3. Water feature
  4. Container including Hanging Baskets
  5. Relaxation/seating area.  

If you wish to enter any of the above Celebrations of Burgess Hill’s Wonderful Gardens, please fill out the form on the Safari and Competition entry page

If you know of anyone else who may be interested, please let them know!!
