Feedback: Good company. Probably I will not need any sheds since I have a big one (12 * 6 ft) and a small one (5 * 4ft)., both Diamond Georgain. Good use of a small space. Pent shape was useful. First shed was good so i had more confidence about 2nd purchase
Response:Thanks for your note. I'm pleased things went well with your 1st shed which gave you the confidence to buy your second. I hope both give you sterling service in your garden. Regards Robin
Britain in Bloom, organised annually by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), helps to transform the lives of people all across the country as the aim is to promote community gardens. When people encompass this marvellous activity they have helped to turn around places such as Manchester and Nottingham as well as many others.
There are essentially 4 aspects to the campaign - the transformational, economic, social and environmental. All these 4 are as important as each other and are seen as a real positive for the country, for gardeners and for gardens throughout the country. These activities bring communities together as the volunteers clean up their areas and introduce more green areas where they live. Their actions have an incredible impact on their local areas which benefit them and their community.
To be involved is great and quite often the simple garden tools in your shed can help you play a part. With the basic garden tools such as the spade, fork, shears and hoe this can help transform an area near you or even transform your own garden. By your actions you can improve your neighbourhood and make it more pleasant to live in and this is something 1st Choice Leisure Buildings likes to take part in.
In Reading residents were being encouraged to take part in the Reading in Bloom, which is a local gardening competition, which rewards the best looking gardens in their area. This gardening competition was the forerunner to the national Britain in Bloom event which encourages communities, such as towns, cities and villages across the country to display their gardening skills over the summer months.
There were several classes in this Reading gardening competition which include the best residential front gardens under 12 ft, more than 12 ft in communal gardens as well as window boxes and on a balcony for homes with only a small patch of earth.
A spokes person from Reading Borough Council said that all types of people can get involved as the whole town can benefit from the superb floral displays which pop up all over the area. They said that businesses and schools were also encouraged to use tools from their garden sheds to help them compete in this gardening competition.
The judging panel, made up from committee members from Reading in Bloom, were also searching for the best allotment. Anyone who lived in the borough of Reading was able to enter with the judging taking place in July.
It's great that these garden campaigns help to promote a greener community and that just basic tools from the garden pent sheds, such as these, and a little hard work is all that is needed to take part. Britain in Bloom is a Europe wide campaign, run by RHS. This organisation works all year round to promote a cleaner and greener country by communities working together in unison.
