Britain in Bloom Finalists 2018

East Haven is one of five locations in Scotland to have been entered into the Britain in Bloom finals 2018. Why not follow East Haven's journey as they prepare to represent Scotland in this important year for Angus. The RHS Bloom competition is based around the three pillar concept of Horticultural Achievement (HA), Community Participation (CP) and Environmental Responsibility (ER). East Haven Together will highlight activities undertaken between November 2017 and October 2018 (East Haven's Bloom year) with a wee note about about how each activity fits into one of the three pillars.
