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:
“The judging for the Hallmark in Bloom Categories has become harder and harder each year with everyone making improvements each year. I just want to say it was a real pleasure to be involved again this year and well done to everyone. Your efforts in making the gardens accessible and places for activity and engagement will be making a difference to the health and happiness of all residents.”
