Runwood Homes launch their annual Blooming Marvellous Competition
The beginning of May marks the launch of Runwood Homes’ Blooming Marvellous competition; a key initiative encouraging residents and team members alike to work together to create vibrant gardens and outdoor spaces. Each Home is asked to brighten up their pots, gardens, pathways and front entrances to give that extra ‘Wow’ Factor.
Across the Group, the competition sees much excitement every year, and everyone within the home loves getting involved, competing to create the very best garden.
Gardening is an immensely popular and social pastime for residents, enhancing wellbeing and purpose, working together towards a common goal which helps build a sense of togetherness and unity within the home. Home teams are encouraged to set up their gardening club over the course of the competition, so residents, relatives and team members all have the chance to take part, even if it is just to sit and watch and enjoy the fresh air and warm weather.
Every home shows unique ways to enhance their outdoor spaces, growing their own fruit, vegetables and herbs from seed, planting bright and beautiful flowers and creating comfortable outdoor seating areas to enjoy a moment of calm under the sunshine.
Over the years, home teams and residents have shown inspiring determination and teamwork throughout the process, something that is sure to be evident again this year too.
Homes must send in before and after photos of their garden, along with descriptions of what they have done by the closing date, 29th of July. The home will also be judged in person during garden visits. The priority and focus on entries should reflect residents’ involvement.
The competition links in with Runwood Homes Dignity theme for May: ‘The Great Outdoors - We are all gardeners’.
A spokesperson for Runwood Homes said:
“The competition really is a great way for residents, team members and relatives to spend time in the home’s gardens during the summer months, working together to create something they can all be proud of. The garden is a relaxing place to spend time, whether that’s to enjoy a quiet morning tea or coffee, a chat with friends, or doing a spot of gardening. Every year we are so impressed by the standard of entries, and we are very much looking forward to seeing what homes do this year as well."
