If so, why not enter the Mid & East Antrim in Bloom community competitions? You can also enter a friend or neighbour’s garden that deserves recognition.

Mid & East Antrim Borough Council encourage everyone who lives in the Borough to think about their local environment and how flowers, plants and gardens can enhance it for people and wildlife.

By actively supporting the ‘In Bloom’ campaign and competitions residents will not only make their garden, school or business more attractive but also assist our entry to the Translink Ulster in Bloom Competition and the Britain in Bloom Competition.

There are great prizes to be won and winners and runners up will be invited to a prize giving ceremony in October.
