FAREHAM is to host a regional horticultural ceremony.

The South and South East England in Bloom awards will be held at Ferneham Hall tomorrow.

The annual event forms part of the national Britain in Bloom campaign in which Fareham has been successful in the past.

It has achieved eight consecutive winning entries in the small city category, with the last six years at gold standard.

Councillor Connie Hockley, who is in charge of leisure and community matters for the borough, said: ‘I’m thrilled that Fareham is hosting this year’s South and South East in Bloom awards presentation.

‘Fareham has consistently shone in partnership with the Fareham in Bloom Volunteers, with its community horticultural campaigns.

‘We are looking forward to welcoming communities from across the region to Fareham.’
