Melksham Open Gardens - Sunday 22nd July 2018

The Melksham Committee of The Children's Society organises an Open Gardens afternoon every July. In 2018 it will be the 19th time this event has taken place. It gives great pleasure to visitors who come from both Melksham and further afield, at the same time raising money for projects such as providing safe houses and access to help for the 100,000 children who run away from home each year.  For more details get in touch with Lesley Windebank on lesleywindebank@blueyonder.co.uk or click here for an entry form.

There is a committee of volunteers and Town Councillors who work all year round making Melksham look great. As well as planting, tidying and cleaning up Melksham, the committee also organises Melksham's entry into South West in Bloom. Melksham has won a Silver and three Silver Gilt awards and won GOLD in 2017!
Volunteers are always welcome, for gardening, and tidying, but also administration, photography, writing and social media support.To get involved with plans for 2018 contact clare.harris@melkshamtown.co.uk

The South West in Bloom Group put the entry together and coordinate activities throughout the year, with the help of Melksham Town Council.
 
Judging Day will take place on Wednesday 11th July this year.  The visiting judges will be shown the work of the many volunteers, groups, businesses and council that takes place all year round to ensure that Melksham looks great. The judges look for cleanliness, quality of flowers throughout the town, and community involvement.  
As well as walking around the town along a pre-arranged route, presentations will be given to the judges to show things that take place throughout the year. 
 
Everyone works really hard to get the town looking its best, but it’s not just about judging day. The South West in Bloom group who get the entry ready want to make sure that Melksham is always looking lovely, so that more people can enjoy our town, spending more time and money here.
 
The group is always looking for local businesses, groups and individuals who would like to get involved and enjoy some great publicity by supporting the entry.
