Mold Town Council helps to enhance the appearance of the Town with floral displays and has this year reintroduced the popular annual ‘Blooming Mold’ competition.
The aim of the competition is to recognise and reward those residents and businesses whose floral displays bring a splash of colour to Mold making it a more attractive place for other residents and visitors.
There are prizes of £60 and £30 in each of the categories:
Hanging baskets, window boxes and/or containers;
Shops, business premises and hotels and public houses;
Best vegetable garden and
Best kept front garden.
There are also Judges prizes that are awarded for:
Individual householders who are able to show initiative with their display; and
Individual businesses that enhance their immediate environment.

Sponsor a floral display
You can help to increase the number of floral displays in Mold in 2012 by sponsoring a hanging basket or planted trough. Mold businesses and residents can help Mold Town Council promote the scheme and really make a difference to the way Mold looks.
Financial contributions from all sponsors will be recorded on a name plaque.
To find out how you can sponsor a floral display or hanging basket please contact Samantha Roberts, Clerk of Mold Town Council, at the Town Hall, Earl Road, Mold - Tel. No. 01352 758532.
Flintshire County Council takes responsibility for many of the colourful flower beds and planters in Mold and the grass cutting on the highways in and around the Town.
The number of hanging baskets in Mold Town Centre, provided and maintained by the Town Council, has again increased with 100 this year (2012) located around the Town Centre. There are new baskets in the Daniel Owen Precinct, High Street and the passageway leading to the High Street from the Griffiths Square car park. There are also six barrier baskets in King Street, and our thanks again go to Mr & Mrs Wright of Gwernaffield Road who have planted them for the Town Council. The number of baskets has increased each year to the current level and the Town Council intends to continue with this programme of improvement next year.
Best Kept Town in Flintshire
As a result of the hard work of Mold Town Council and Flintshire County Council, Mold came second in the category of the Best Kept Town Centre (with a population of over 5000) in the 2011 Flintshire County Council’s Environmental Awards.
