Sheffield is the only UK city chosen for competition judges to look at on 19 July. They will look at Sheffield’s floral displays, and management of the environment, green spaces and parks. Competition criteria include environmental sustainability, regeneration, education and training and neighbourhood renewal.
The launch of Sheffield’s entry into Entente Florale recently took place at its botanical gardens.
Sheffield City Council head of street force John Charlton said: “Sheffield has embraced and built on its steel heritage and has
become one of the greenest cities in Europe, making it an attractive place to live and work.
“It’s a great honour for Sheffield to be invited to represent the UK in such a prestigious competition.”
The competition is organised by the Association Européenne du Fleurissement et du Paysage and was founded more than 25 years ago, initially between Great Britain and France. The awards ceremony will be held in Hungary in September. St Ives will represent Britain in the villages category.
