Woolton scoops gold award
Woolton Village has once again proved its fabulous floral displays are a cut above the rest by being awarded the gold medal in the ‘Champions of Champions’ category’ by the Royal Horticultural Society Britain in Bloom awards.
RHS Britain in Bloom is a nationwide community gardening campaign aiming to transform cities, towns and villages through community partnerships, local groups and volunteers. Established since 1964, the campaign is hugely successful, with over 1,600 communities participating each year.
The Woolton in Bloom team were highly commended for their efforts, which this year included a bed of poppies surrounding a sculpture of a soldier to commemorate the start of World War I. Many people from the local community volunteered with the project, including local secondary school, Gateacre.
Woolton In Bloom chairwoman Barbara Mace, said: “We are absolutely delighted with this latest achievement, it is the pinnacle of all our hard work and dedication which we started way back in 2001.
“This is one of many successes for everyone involved in Woolton in Bloom and it could not have been done without the fantastic team of volunteers.
“I hope this win can spur us on to keep creating beautiful and eye-catching floral displays for residents and visitors to enjoy year after year.”
