Gullands’ boat adds a splash of colour for town centre3.10.2016
We are delighted to sponsor for the second time a boat planted full of flowers, which has been brightening up Gravesend town centre this summer.
The sponsorship is part of the Gravesham in Bloom competition, organised by Gravesham Borough Council, which sees communities creating floral features to enhance their town.
This competition is also part of the largest horticultural campaign in Europe. It encourages communities to create floral features, along with permanent planting, wildflower meadows, planting for nature, fruit and vegetables and much more.
Expert judges tour the region and award marks based on a range of criteria, including how water-efficient entrants have been. In 2014 Gravesend secured its first ever gold award, and in 2015, a silver gilt award.
The Gullands’ boat is located near the one-way system in Gravesend, so be sure to look out for it if travelling through the town!
