RESIDENTS and business owners in Burnham-on-Sea are being encouraged to enter the town’s annual flower competition, Burnham in Bloom.

This year’s competition has 16 categories to enter, ranging from best front garden to the best decorated shop window.

Dave Perrett, chairman of Burnham in Bloom, said: “We are now open for entries - there are lots of different categories to enter.”

This time for the first time since 2011, Burnham is also being entered in the South West in Bloom competition.

All of the entries to Burnham in Bloom will help with the competition.

Judging will take place in July and trophies and certificates will be presented later this year. 

Entry forms can be found in this week's Weekly News.
