South & South East in Bloom are delighted that our former Headline sponsor from 2001-2014 has once again joined us. This year Southern Water will be supporting us as we develop more robust responses to environmental concerns. They will be the sponsors of a new category – The Environmental Challenge, so if your community is taking action to reduce the effects of climate change, global warming and are reducing the use of watering for gardens and in the home as well as reducing your use of Peat and Pesticides we would like to hear from you. We also wish to hear for those who are changing their gardening habits and are planting plants tolerant of our dry summers and also plants that help to reduce the impact of air pollution. If you want to get in involved in our free to enter challenge please ask for an entry form. contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
