‘In-Bloom’ Judges Visit Weston-super-Mare

Weston-super-Mare’s floral displays were the focus of a visit by the South West In Bloom Judges on Wednesday 4th July.

Judges Richard Budge and John Yeo toured the town’s floral displays including the eye-catching train on Alexandra Parade, the displays at the train station and the hanging baskets, finishing in Grove Park where they met the Mayor and the Weston-In-Bloom team.

Weston in Bloom, which is funded and organized by Weston-super-Mare Town Council, relies on the hard work of its fabulous team of volunteers, as well as the Grounds Team and Weston Bid, to plant and maintain the flower beds around the town.

Malcolm Nicholson, Town Clerk said “All those involved in Weston In Bloom have been working really hard to make sure the floral displays are ready for judging, and they should be proud of what they achieved”.

The national “Britain in Bloom” competition is run by the Royal Horticultural Society and Weston-super-Mare will be assessed on its horticultural achievement, community participation and environmental responsibility.

Weston-super-Mare has entered the local South West region Campaign and previously won the Gold Award five years running, before taking a break last year to enable more volunteers to be recruited.

The awards will be announced in October 2018.
