'Virtual' North Tyneside in Bloom for 2020
North Tyneside in Bloom invites residents, businesses, schools and community groups to exhibit the dedication and hard work that goes into maintaining their gardens and outdoor areas.
We wanted to ensure that this hard work doesn’t go unnoticed and, despite the ongoing pandemic and social distancing guidelines, the competition will go ahead but in a slightly different fashion to ensure the safety of residents and our team whilst celebrating our fantastic gardens and communal areas in North Tyneside.
This year, the competition will go ahead virtually, where entrants will be asked to submit pictures of their garden or outdoor areas alongside their application – and judges will decide the winners based on these images.
Applications for this year's competition are now closed and judging is set to take place soon.
