Here come the judges!

Campbell River will be visited by a team of national Communities in Bloom judges from today until Saturday

Campbell River will be visited by a team of national Communities in Bloom judges from today until Saturday.

The Communities in Bloom committee encourages all members of the community to share the great opportunities Campbell River has to offer.

“If you’re approached by these eminent and expertly qualified volunteers, who are so generous with their time and wisdom, please don’t be shy about telling them about our community,” says Nigel Lambeth, chair of the Communities in Bloom committee

“We look forward to showing the judges Campbell River in bloom and to receiving their recommendations for future improvements.”

The Communities in Bloom committee has developed a comprehensive program of judges’ visits to different activities and sites to demonstrate Campbell River’s many environmental, recreational, cultural and heritage achievements and opportunities.

The judges’ review of Campbell River follows strict scoring methodology and is forwarded to the national competition.

“We also get real value from their recommendations that focus on needed upgrades and guide future planning for improvements,” says the City’s parks project supervisor Lynn Wark.

For Campbell River’s third national Communities in Bloom entry, the judges are Betty Lamont and Normand Rosa.

Lamont is from Inverhuron, Ontario and has been member and chair of the Kincardine Communities in Bloom Committee since 2000.

In February, Rosa retired as manager and head of horticulture at the Biodôme and the Montreal Botanical Gardens, one of the world’s most important botanical gardens, after 31 years of service.
