BANSTEAD VILLAGE IN BLOOM RULES

Our Steering Group has a substantial number of local community groups, organisations and individuals. We have come together to enter our Village in the South and South East Area part of the Competition.

 

The list of the groups currently engaged in this endeavour are set out below. This list is in no particular order and all are confident that more groups will join us in the future. This is an impressive list and the partners strongly believe that this is the first of many years of partnership between the groups involved.

The entry runs all-year round and we anticipate a wide range of benefits such as cleaner, greener and safer surroundings, a growing sense of community pride, and increased commercial enterprise and increased number of visitors.


The route for last year Judges will included the following: 


Presentation to the judges at Banstead Community Junior School in the Horseshoe 

  • Tour of school site then 

  • Walk from school to the Library areas along The Horseshoe, then

  • Walk along High Street to Briarwood, and then

  • to St Peters Church including Orchard/Memorial Garden/ War Graves

  • Along Court Road or High Street to Lady Neville Recreation Ground

  • Cross the Ground via the wildflower area, and onto

  • Back to High Street and end walk at the Woolpack (or Barclays Bank if time permits) 

  • Judges bussed to Winkworth Woodland Project – Winkworth Road and then

The route for 2019 is still being finalized and we will publish it when complited. 

The High Street judging

Our entry will be assessed for efforts in the three key areas:

  • Horticultural achievement

  • Community participation

  • Environmental responsibility


As mentioned above, the partners are busy arranging for all the areas along the proposed route show our village in the best light. In particular, Banstead Village Residents’ Association has arranged for a Mega Spring Clean on date to be confirmed, a continuation of the Clean for the Queen initiative. Volunteers will be meeting at 9.30am on (date to be confirmed) at The Banstead Community Hall in Park Road. Gloves, litter pickers and black bags will be provided. All volunteers are welcome, please come and join us. 

Banstead and Reigate Council are re planting the roundabout; refreshing Lady Neville Recreation Ground, other adjoining areas and new and existing Planters in the High Street. The colour scheme chosen for 2018 is Red , White and Blue. This colour scheme will be encouraged in a proposed competition run by Banstead Horticultural Society namely ‘The Best Kept Front Garden’. Competitors will be encouraged to consider the whole street Scene sprucing up grass verges in the proximity of their premises. 

For the front garden competition you can use red, white and blue or your prefered colour scheme. 


On a date yet to be set for June a Mega Clean will take place: meet in the Car Park at the front of the Community Hall in Park Road. Gloves, bags and litter pickers will be provided.
However, each week on Friday at 9:30am - for about an hour - a team of volunteers clean streets in and around the Village. If you would like to help - drop an email to Kerry on kerry.garner@outlook.com
