On Thursday 8th October members of Weston in Bloom and our local BID team attended the South West In Bloom awards in Taunton at the Somerset County Cricket ground. It was here Weston would find out what award they had secured.
The day began by awarding the It’s Your Neighbourhood awards to all the local community groups and schools. Weston had a total of 15 entries this year achieving 9 Outstanding and 6 Thriving.
Then came the afternoon where it was announced Weston had achieved Gold once again for a 5th year in a row! This is an amazing achievement for all involved. The judge John Wheatley said “Weston-super-Mare can be proud of its entry. It is great to see how your success at National level in 2015 has been sustained. The whole team approach has resulted in major improvements, often over and above what could be expected within the timescale you have set yourselves”
Also something he was particularly impressed with was the improvements to the town centre saying it was “outstanding given the pressures of a modern seaside venue”
Everyone involved in Weston in Bloom was extremely pleased with the result and looks forward to the year ahead.
Weston in Bloom is in urgent need of help! They have many projects spread across the whole town and all of them need maintaining. Volunteers are what helps keep Weston in Bloom running and stay in touch with the community. They are currently in need of more volunteers to help keep this project alive. Just dedicating a few hours of your week would make a huge difference.
This is a fun project to be involved in and a great way to meet new people. Everyone is welcome!
