First Impressions is a Business Award run by Harrogate in Bloom.

It offers another PR opportunity for your business and you don’t need plot of land to enter.

Think instead; shop window or frontage, entrance area, work-space, car-park, etc.

Closing date 1st July. Judging date 10-21 July.

There’s an army of people making Harrogate a place people want to live, work and visit – but we can all do more. Here are a few ideas:


HARROGATE IS A CLEAN TOWN, LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY

Keep your premises clean and remove litter

If you do an organised litter pick, the council can help with pickers and bags

Don’t leave out bins or bags longer than necessary

Report graffiti, vandalism or fly tipping to Harrogate council 01423500600

Report broken street furniture lampposts to North Yorkshire County Council 01609 780780


RECYCLE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN

Reduced landfill figures help our judging


BRIGHTEN UP YOUR BUSINESS

If you have a front garden use colourful plants: weed it and care for it

Use window boxes, hanging baskets or stylish flower boxes to bloom up your business!


LET’S HAVE FUN

We went yellow cycle crazy for the TDF in 2014, let’s have petal power for 2017

Real or artificial, decorate your windows with interesting floral art

Get your workforce involved


SUPPORT TEAM HARROGATE

There are 15 voluntary groups working as Team Harrogate alongside the council who are always looking for support

Visit www.harrogateinbloom.org.uk for member groups

If you have employees willing to get ‘hands on’ there will be loads for them to do


BRAG IT UP FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR BUSINESS

Harrogate is a multi-gold award winner, 33 times Yorkshire in Bloom: 12 times Britain in Bloom and the only town to have won Europe in Bloom twice

Tell the world about our Bloom success on social media, promotional materials and anywhere else

Rooting for Harrogate window stickers are available from Harrogate Tourist Information Centre
