We’re celebrating the people whose green fingers and gardening achievements help make our waterways such pleasant places to visit. This summer we’ll be presenting certificates to those whose plants, flowers and vegetable displays make a positive contribution to our canals and rivers.
The certificates are our way of saying a big thank you to everyone who boosts our ongoing work to make our waterways green and attractive places which everyone can enjoy. Gardening efforts on and besides our waterways help;
As well as presenting certificates to thank everyone who has made a positive green contribution (big or small), we’ll also be giving out some special awards for boaters and other groups who are making an extra-special effort to help make our waterways blooming lovely.
We’d love to see your pictures of your planting, you can post them on our Trust's Boating Facebook page or tweet them with the hashtag #boatsinbloom or #towpathinbloom. We’ll also feature a selection of your pictures on our website
We will be inviting nominations for special awards at the start of May. You will be able to nominate yourself or someone else for one of our special awards via our website. More details coming soon.
(Special prizes may be awarded to other non-boat floating structures)
Our panel of keen gardeners will look at all of the nominations and select a shortlist for the public to vote on which will decide the special awards winners. Voting will take place between 10 July and 9 August with the winners announced on 14 August.
