Coventry City Centre is playing host to the Heart of England in Bloom Judging Day.

This year, Coventry's Business Improvement District and Coventry City Council are entering as a joint entry into the town and city category.

The competition offers the chance for the judges to meet with the city centre community who have played a part in transforming grounds and shared spaces in the area.

In 2014, Coventry was awarded the Gold Award in the Heart of England in Bloom competition and are hoping for the same success this year.
