Blooming Lambeth 2020

Blooming Lambeth

This year’s awards are going ahead with a difference in judging and will depend on your entry as the judges won’t be visiting.

The full list of categories can be found on the Incredible Edible Blooming Lambeth awards page.

Please send your best description and pictures to the category you wish to nominate to. There will be prizes for all shortlisted nominations.

Closing date has now been extended to 31 August.

Covid-19 update

We are awaiting further Central Government guidance as to when facilities can be re-opened albeit whilst having to social distance. We are hopeful this may happen next month providing the government believes the infection rate is reducing. However, we don’t anticipate this will allow the usual bookings for parties to happen but could allow some activities which can maintain social distancing such as after school clubs or classes. In the meantime TRAs can always find the latest advice on the council's Coronavirus (Covid-19) page.
