Hook in Bloom – Village Garden Competition – THE RESULTS ARE IN!
SHARE WITH FRIENDS & FAMILY…
Hook Village has been looking “blooming” lovely and the green fingered efforts of the local community have been on full display during the village’s annual Hook in Bloom competition, this year entries have been of an exceptionally high standard across all categories and the judges, including Kevin from our Hook and Surrounding Villages office, were very impressed.
On Sunday 11th September 2022 Elizabeth Hall hosted the annual Hook Flower & Produce Show which we have supported since opening our doors in Hook in late 2020.
After the event Kevin,alongside Hampshire County Councillor Jonathan Glen and Hook Parish Councillor John Orchard proudly took on the marathon job of presenting the prizes to the well deserving winners!
All the category winners received their rosettes and the coveted Best in Show award this year went to Robert Herron.
Show day is also when villagers learn who has won the Hook In Bloom annual competition and the Scarecrow competition. This year judging the Hook In Bloom Competition was extremely difficult and volunteers had to go out soon after the competition closing date, at the start of the heat wave, so they could get as many photos as possible for the In Bloom judges to have a final say on the winners.
