Hallmark in Bloom: This year’s winners
We are proud to announce the winners of Hallmark in Bloom, our company-wide gardening competition.
All of our homes across England and Wales have worked extremely hard to improve the quality of their gardens and demonstrate strong evidence of resident and community engagement.
This year’s event saw great improvement on last year, and we will continue to work closely with Thrive in order to take our gardens to the next level.
Damien Newman, Training, Education and Consultancy Manager for Thrive said: “Like last year picking the winners is getting harder and harder because all of the homes are engaged in the process of keeping their gardens looking good as the first step.
“The winners next year will be the homes that have found ways to innovate and ensure true engagement with the residents across the year.”
