The Council 

The time has come for people in Erewash to once again showcase their fantastic flower displays and gardens through an annual competition run by Erewash Borough Council.

The hugely popular Erewash in Bloom crowns winners across a range of categories, all of which will help make Erewash bloomin’ marvellous this summer.

The competition is online this year due to the fallout from coronavirus. Unlike previous years where judges visited the gardens of finalists, this time entrants can submit five photographs per category through an online entry form where photographs for each category can be uploaded.

There are 11 categories for residents, community groups, businesses and schools, with final judging by a virtual panel in August. The top three entrants in six of the categories, including best front garden and tallest sunflower, will receive cash prizes or vouchers. There will be certificates and trophies for the winners in the other five categories.

The competition launched on Tuesday 27 April and entries will close on 6 August.

Entries can also be posted to: Erewash in Bloom, Merlin House, Merlin Way, Ilkeston, Derbyshire DE7 4RA. Please include your name, contact details and which category you are entering.
