Have your say

ASPIRING young gardeners are being encouraged to enter a gardening design competition in Fareham.

The contest is being organised to celebrate the annual Fareham in Bloom campaign.

The theme for next season’s Fareham in Bloom is ‘Pastel Perfect’ and young shoppers, school children and members of various community clubs are being invited to design a flower bed that could become reality.

In soft shades including lilac, pink and yellow, entrants can create a display in any shape they like.

Entry forms are available to pick up around Fareham Shopping Centre and participants can pop their completed entries into the postbox near Vision Express.

The competition closes on August 5.
