The brewery team would like to congratulate all 18 pubs who took part in our Brentwood in Bloom Pubs Competition.
We are delighted to announce this year’s joint winners are The Hutton Junction, Hutton and The Essex Arms, Warley Hill.
Our thanks go to independent judges Robert Gunn of Burnt Oak Consulting and Keith Petty, horticultural guru of Brentwood.
“We were looking for a good display of colour and imaginative planting but more importantly we were looking for how much personal involvement owners, managers and staff had in the creation of the displays,” said judge Robert Gunn.
All pubs taking part in the competition won discount vouchers for Brentwood Beer.
Roland Kannor, MD of Brentwood Brewing Company said: “We’re thrilled that so many local pubs entered this year’s competition. The Hutton Junction and The Essex Arms are worthy winners as they have nurtured their plants from seed, which demonstrates the time and dedication they put into their gardens.”
This year’s Brentwood in Bloom Awards Presentation was held at Brentwood Brewery (yesterday evening) in the presence of Brentwood Mayor, Vicky Davis. Winners of the schools and religious grounds categories were presented with framed certificates and prizes by Jane Bennett of Bennetts Funeral Directors. All the pubs in the competition were presented with a framed certificate and prizes by Brentwood Brewing Company’s Roland Kannor.
“It is an honour to bring the people behind this community-spirited competition together with an awards presentation evening at Brentwood Brewery. It wasn’t possible to get the business category winners on board this year due to time constraints but we aim to plan well ahead for next year’s competition,” added Roland.
The White Hart Inn, Margaretting Tye, The Viper and The Brewery Tap also made it into this year’s ‘Premier League’ of entries.
