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
