CRA wildflower competition

Send us your photos of wildflowers in Chorleywood’s lovely grass verges, naming the flowers in your covering email.

There are two prizes of £25 Lords Vouchers on offer, one for children of 16 and under, and the other for 17 and over.  See if you can match your grandparents’ wildflower knowledge!  The winner will be the entrant(s) with the highest number of correctly identified species. 

Our deadline is Sunday June 16th; the winners will be announced at Chorleywood Village Day on July 13th.

We have asked that Herts County Council adhere to No Mow May but there is a risk that come June they will start mowing again. So beware!
