Gold Award for Bluewater
We were delighted to win our second consecutive Gold Award for South and Southeast in Bloom at Bluewater this year.
Each year a team of highly qualified and experienced judges visit entries to assess/judge sites against the appropriate criteria. Visits last between 1-4 hours depending on the size of the entry. Once judges have visited the site and considered how closely the entry meets the criteria, they make an award.
The award system recognises every entrant’s efforts in improving their local environment, with awards based on the standard achieved, not just a case of Pass or Fail. Entrants are assessed to a consistent standard, with each entry receiving an award that recognises the standards reached.
The awards are:
Gold Outstanding – (85% and above) (overall 170-200 points)
Silver Gilt Very good – (70-84%) (Overall 139-169 points)
Silver Good – (55-69%) (Overall 109-138 points)
Bronze Average – (39-54%) (Overall 78-108 points)
This was another huge achievement for the team, who have now won four awards so far this year! It is a great to have all the hard work that they put in on a daily basis be recognised.
