'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.
Planning is underway with participants aware that we are currently keeping a close eye on the government’s roadmap out of lockdown which will help determine exactly how we might host the competition this summer. Please watch this space for developments over the coming weeks.
If you took part in 2020, we will contact you once we have full details for this year’s event, but if you would like to be kept informed please drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again to everybody for helping to make North Tyneside Bloom and contributing to making sure the borough is a great place to live.
