MONTROSE Rotary Club has again teamed up with Angus Council’s parks department to run its popular ‘Design a flower bed’ competition for local schoolchildren.
Sponsored by The Links Hotel and The Park Hotel, the competition is open to all children in the Montrose area up to the age of 12 years, either through their school or individually and application packs and competition guidelines are available now.
There is no theme and the winning entry will be planted this autumn, timed to be in bloom in 2014. Next year is an important one for Scotland, not least because of the Commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow but because it is the 700th Anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.
The design can be created in any medium as long as you the colours on the flower chart supplied are followed and the design is kept within the template.
Packs are available from The George Hotel, or from the club’s website at http://www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/homepage.php?ClubID=46. Alternatively, they can be e-mailed by contacting the club via Facebook at www.facebook.com/RotaryClubOfMontrose. Entry to the competition is free.
The closing date for entries, which should be sent to The George Hotel marked for the attention of the Rotary Club of Montrose, is May 31.
