North Tyneside in Bloom

'Virtual' North Tyneside in Bloom for 2021

North Tyneside in Bloom invites residents, businesses, schools, and community groups to showcase the dedication and hard work that goes into maintaining their gardens and outdoor areas.

In 2020, we wanted to ensure that this hard work did not go unnoticed and, despite the pandemic and government restrictions, the competition was able to go ahead virtually, allowing us to continue to celebrate our fantastic gardens and communal areas in North Tyneside.

Following the success of last year’s competition, we are confident that the competition will be able to go ahead again in some format in 2021. 

The competition is now open for 2021 and, like last year, you can enter by following the link below to the application form. Once you have submitted your application, instructions will follow regarding how to send us your photographs.

Please note: The closing date for entries has been extended to 15th August 2021.
