ORGANISERS of the Malvern In Bloom local gardens competition are urging local people to keep an eye out for beautiful gardens which could take part.

Maggie Williams of the Bloom team said: "Do you take note of your surroundings on your way to work or while you walk the dog?

"We are very aware of the beautiful gardens created by keen gardeners in Malvern, but are there some we have missed?

"If a very nice garden in your locality catches your eye, why not tell the Malvern in Bloom team about it? Contact us via Lyndsey Davies at Malvern Town Council and we will contact the garden owners and encourage them to enter our competition.

"Whatever the size or style of the garden, if it has that wow factor, we'd like to visit it. We'd like to meet more vegetable growers, too, so if you are growing your own at home please get in touch."

Lyndsey Davies can be contacted on 01684 566667 or The closing date is Saturday, June 28, and judging will take place on Thursday, July 10.
