Weston-super-Mare Regional Judging Day – Great Success !
Weston-super-Mare had its Regional Judging day for South West in Bloom on Tuesday 7th July. Although the weather didn’t seem promising at first, no ones spirits were dampened and the sun shone through on a successful day for Weston in Bloom!
This year’s judges were Tony Moor and Mark Logan. Weston in Bloom had been preparing for this day for some time and was looking forward to showing the judges what all their hard work and dedication has achieved. The day started early at 9.30am in Grove Park and ended at 1.00pm in Milton Road Cemetery.
One of the stops along the way was Westhaven School where horticulture is an important and key part of the curriculum. Wendy Vincent from Westhaven said “The children at Westhaven work very hard and have a justified pride in their achievements, it was rewarding to hear such positive comments from the judges and to see their enjoyment of our beautiful grounds”
This year the judges visited the garden of Sue and Rod Thomas, both keen gardeners! The judges loved exploring their treasure trove of plants and up cycled garden ornaments.
The judges were greeted by all members of Weston in Bloom and volunteers when they arrived back at Grove House for lunch.
All that is left to do now is wait for the results.
Weston-Super-Mare has also been selected to enter the National Britain in Bloom competition in 2015! This is a great honour for the town. Weston in Bloom has claimed Gold for the past 3 years in the South West regional category and will now be entering the national category.
This will involve another judging day on Monday 3rd August.
This is an exciting and memorable year for Weston in Bloom and everyone involved is hoping the town will support and help them to achieve another brilliant result. It’s not just the Flowers which the judges look at; it’s the town as a whole.
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, especially with it being the year of the nationals. 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!
