Southwest in Bloom Spring Seminar 2019.
On Thursday three members of CRiB attended the SWiB Spring Seminar in Chippenham. The main reason for being there was to hear about the revised judging guidelines to be introduced this year:
In the past, marking was out of a possible total of 200 points.
50% of those 200 points could be allocated to Horticulture;
25% went to environmental aspects and
25 % went to community involvement
#From this year, the new total has been reduced to 100 points — to make marking tighter and more accurate — and the proportions have been modified to:
Horticulture 40%; Environment 30% and Community 30%.
This new system has been five years in the making and has been thoroughly trialled for three years in Yorkshire.
The Bloom Theme for 2019 is Water — Too Much & Too Little. Judges and Assessors will be looking for creative use of water and how communities cope when there is too much rainfall — or when there is not enough.
CRiB would love to hear from anyone who has ideas about how this might be achieved or who would like to be involved with the planning and hard work which we hope will achieve another gold medal and cup or two come the Awards in October.
