Presentation Day at Dartmouth
Thursday 24th September 2015
This year we will be holding the presentation ceremony in the very spectacular venue of the Britannia Royal Naval College , Dartmouth on Thursday 24th September.
The Dartmouth Bloom group, assisted by the Kingsbridge group will be acting as hosts for this very exciting event.
This is an active Naval College so there are special conditions that will be required. The number attending is restricted to 320 persons, and it will be necessary to send to the College names and vehicle registrations two weeks before the event. It will not be possible to change these after this date, and you will not be able to swap tickets, due to the security of the site.
The presentation will be theatre style in the Quarterdeck, with a buffet lunch being taken in the Mess Hall. The cost is £18 per person.
As expected the location has been very popular and we have now reached our allocation of tickets.
We have now closed the on line booking facility.
We have reserved three tickets for any of our main competition entries who have not yet applied for tickets. It will be neccesssary for these tickets to now be booked via the secretary either by e mail or post until the closing date of 9th September.
When all the main entries have taken the tickets they require, there may be some that can be re allocated. Also we may get some cancellations, so we are setting up a reserve list for tickets .
Tickets and full details will be posted to all delegates.

BEST PARK 2014 - Northenhay Gardens, Exeter
The best Park competition was a new category introduced by in conjunction with the RHS in 2014.Due to the success, the competition is being expanded in 2015. This time the parks will be able to be judged either on the main tour, or judged separately during July and August.
Plans are still in an early stage, but the parks will probably be judged out of 5 Stars. Each park will receive a plaque to display in the Park to show their award.
