Moseley In Bloom Awards
The Moseley in Bloom Awards started in 2006 and usually took place in late summer each year giving public recognition to some of the local residents and businesses that are a credit to the community. The original concept was to encourage everybody to take part in improving the local environment and to make the urban village of Moseley as attractive as possible.
The original awards were presented in the following categories: Star Shop, Most Captivating Café, Rosiest Restaurant, Most Blooming Boozer, Most Floral Faith Group, Most Blooming Business or Institution, Evergreen Elders, Special Achievement Award. Credit was given for the horticultural display, the imaginative use of planters and the maintenance of the display.
The second campaign was the MiB Front Garden Awards which had three categories: Small Gardens, Large Gardens and Parking Gardens (gardens that have been modified to increase parking while retaining an attractive garden component). The purpose of this new category was to encourage residents to design a significant garden area with attractive and colourful plantings alongside the area designated for parking. In addition, credit was given for the environmental friendliness of the hard standing – using permeable surfaces or drains to capture run-off. Gardens could be nominated by residents, or identified by Moseley in Bloom Committee members.
The awards have not been held for a number of years and we were super excited to relaunch the Moseley in Bloom Business Awards this year albeit on a smaller scale.
The relauch was a sucess … and here are 2022 Bloom Award Winners
