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 Regional Landscape Gardener Nick Mannion and Hayley Hughes from Plantology in order to take our gardens to the next level.
Head of Relationship Centred Care at Hallmark Care Homes, April Dobson said: “This year, we were all reminded that the Hallmark in Bloom competition is far more than simply a gardening competition. It has provided an important point of focus for many people during some difficult times, and helped us to connect with others, underpinning Hallmark’s relationship-centred care approach.
“The standard of gardening and using gardens for health and wellbeing across the homes, has significantly improved this year and amongst the homes, there are outstanding examples of how gardens can be used to enhance the wellbeing and health of the people you care for.”
