The Formartine Partnership is delighted to announce that judging for the 2017 Formartine in Bloom competition is to begin next week.
Participating communities are assessed not only on the quality of their floral display, but also on environmental quality (cleanliness and tidiness of the display areas), recycling and community involvement.
The competition runs in conjunction with the Formatine Floral Trail which covers from Balmedie in the south to Turriff in the north.
A total of 20 villages and towns are included in the trail, where you can see a number of colourful and imaginative floral displays.
Many groups participated with the fun project of Fred and his flowerpot family last year and you will see that there are Flowerpot characters to be found once again in many locations.
