The Entente Florale Awardsis an international non-profit association, and its overall aims are social and cultural development to enhance Horticulture, Tourism and Environment.
For realizing these aims we encourage actions that foster a better quality of life for urban dwellers.
The association organizes an international competition known as Entente Florale Europe, in order to promote a greener and more pleasant environment in European towns and villages and to facilitate international contacts among the participants, based on reference towns and villages network. Through this annual competition, public authorities, private bodies and individuals are encouraged to cooperate in beautifying their towns and villages thereby improving the quality of life for both inhabitants and visitors, by the planting of flowers and shrubs, by the development and maintenance of green spaces and parks and by generally fostering development which is ecologically and environmentally sensitive.
Our Trim ca site was one of the places that the judges visited back in July of this year. We along with nearly everyone in Trim put in a huge effort to ensure that the whole town was in tip top shape. We put in a huge effort ensuring the yard here was in pristine condition by cutting back shrubs/hedging,planting flowers,putting up hanging baskets,re-painting the road markings at the entrance,erecting a new sign at the entrance and lots more. We got very positive feedback from Meath County Council on how great our civic amenity site looked, and on how professional we were in presenting the site when the judges came for their visit.
Trim has won gold in its category, meaning it will now be recognized internationally as one of the finest towns in Europe.
