City Centre Initiative continue to develop and deliver the annual City Centre Floral Competition in conjunction with Altnagelvin Garden and Pet Centre. This competition is a colourful and wonderful way to bring in the summer season.

The Floral Competition provides all city-centre businesses and residents within the city centre and suburbs to put their creative mark on their respective patch of the City Centre. Not only is this event a mechanism for teamwork within the city, but it also brightens up the city, provides a positive welcome for visitors and makes the city a nicer place to be. There are three categories in the competition which are:

  1. Public Services
  2. Hospitality
  3. Residential

Each category will have three awards Gold, Silver and Bronze consisting of vouchers for Altnagelvin Garden and Pet Centre. This is an exciting incentive to entice people to enter the competition.

The numbers of entrants for this project continue to grow at an astonishing rate year on year and the broad sphere of entrants also goes to demonstrate the far-reaching impact the event has gained.

The 2019 CCI Floral Competition in partnership with Altnagelvin Garden and Pet Centre took place on Friday 28th June 2019.
